My name is Olevia Braithwaite and I am from Haymarket, VA. I come from a rather large high school with a graduating class of about 800 students. I’m interested in doing something with elementary education but I am still unsure of a major. The reason I attended college is so I can further my education and get the best career possible. I’m hoping that I not only learn more about the world over the next few years, but more about myself. The thing I am most excited for in this class is learning more about how to use the internet in new ways to create and discover. There are two topics on the syllabus that seem to be very interesting. The Theoretical Constructions of Identity, both gender and race, seem very appealing to learn about. They’re both topics that are popular among the media and are controversial. I’m excited to read about it and to also hear my peers views during class discussions. This is a picture of my baby sister, Christena, and I. She’s probably my favorite person in the world so I thought I would share.
