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.
Kelsie Baxter is a senior majoring in Geography (concentration in Global Studies) with a minor in International Studies. “Choosing to concentrate my research on homosexuality in Zimbabwe arose when I was surprised to hear about the unjust human rights violations and attacks against the homosexual community in this day-in-age. While here in America, we can love deeply and freely, there are still many places around the world where same-sex love is punished through means of torment and unbearable violence. While I as one person cannot alone change what is happening to those living in Zimbabwe, I could at least attempt to understand who the ones against homosexuals are and why the violence is aimed at homosexuals. Once those questions are answered, maybe then there could reach a solution for peace and understanding. In the future, I hope to be able to use this experience and knowledge gained in order to help others live freely and openly, without fear of judgement and harm. We must love each other, for each other is all we have.”
