Bliss Brown

Name: Bliss Brown 

Major: Women's and Gender Studies and Human Relations

Minor: Psychology 

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.

Hello Ms. Brown, my name is Jaron Spor and I’m with OU Nightly. Harlee Toothman told me about the event you are doing tonight and I would love to cover it for Nightly! All I would need to do is take some video of the event and then interview someone afterwards real quick. Let me know if this is something I will be able to do. Thank you!
