Anterior Cruciate Ligaments
By Alexis Jenkins
Alexis Jenkins definitely is very active from the start. Sports have always been her passion; growing up, you could always catch her outside at the softball field playing with her high school, tournament team, or family. This all was until she had an almost career-ending injury occur not just once but twice. Luckily, she could continue to play two years of college softball, but she always wondered why tearing your ACL, also known as your Anterior Cruciate Ligament, was such a big deal. Now years later, she is a Senior here at Millersville studying Sports Journalism. After graduation, she plans to work her way into the ESPN world to eventually become an ESPN Broadcast Journalist.
Skyler Gibbon is an English BSE major and minoring in African American Studies. She is in her junior year at Millersville University. Though born in Philadelphia, she has lived in Lancaster County most of her life. This project is derived from a presentation she did last november at the 2017 State System Summit: Intersectionality, Moving Beyond the Borders. She worked with Dr Corkery and some of his other students to produce presentations that carried the theme of intersectional standpoints in hip hop. The themes of narrative, authenticity, and intersectionality that she studied in her Hip Hop course gave her perspective into Beyonce’s role as an empowering role model for black women inspired her to pursue Beyonce as the subject of this project.
