Vanessa Bishop


I am a transfer student majoring in Legal Studies with a Human Rights Interdisciplinary minor. My experiences as a homeless student have allowed me to understand the importance of access to basic needs and academic resources in underprivileged communities.

I plan to attend law school and become a human rights attorney and advocate for educational policies that will support the growth of low-income youth of color and students facing homelessness and housing insecurity.

Research interests: 

I am passionate about civil rights, social justice, and international law.
