The Core Curriculum

About the Scholar: Jaala Alston

Jaala Alston (CC’22) hails from Georgia, and is studying Economics and Ethnic and Racial Studies. She is immensely honored to have experienced a Literature Humanities course that focused on diversifying the curriculum in an effort to expose students to the voices of writers of color, and feels more empowered in her ownership of the Western tradition because of it. She hopes to work on the academic side of Economics, and to help bring conversations about economically vulnerable communities into focus within the field.
