Name: Bliss Brown
Major: Women's and Gender Studies and Human Relations
Graduation date: May 2016
Plans after Graduation:
I got a job as the Prevention Education Advocate at the Women's Resource Center in Norman, OK. I plan to hold this position for a year or two at least. I then plan to return to school to pursue a dual master's degree in Social Work and Public health.
Why did you choose to major in WGS:
I took into to WGS and found that I was especially passionate about the topics we discussed in class. I got an internship at the OU Women's Outreach Center, and, after a semester there, I decided that I'd like to do that kind of work for the rest of my life. So, I changed my major to WGS.
What do you like about majoring in WGS:
I like the type of people involved in the program and the opportunity to build mentorship relationships with the faculty. I also love the large number of learning opportunities and events outside of the classroom.
Why is WGS important to you:
As a bisexual woman who has experienced sexual assault, learning about queer and women's issues had given me the knowledge and ability to make a difference in the lives of others like me.
