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.
Esther is a Spanish and International Studies dual major with a minor in Linguistics (ESL). She has a passion for international development and studying cross border issues especially in the global regions of Latin America and the Caribbean. Her project featured at this year’s Made in Millersville conference has provided her with the opportunity to publish her first quantitative study through exploring the topic of immigration. In the future, Esther plans to continue volunteering for the American Red Cross and hopes to one day pursue a Masters Degree in Public Administration.
