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.

By Tyresha Vaughan-Blanding
Tyesha Vaughan-Blanding is a senior at Millersville University studying Digital Journalism. She wrote this piece realizing that there was a lack of conversation when it came to Neurodivergent Black Women who specifically have ADHD, Autism, and Dyslexia. Her piece of writing is important to her because she wanted to highlight the systems that work against Black women as well as the challenges they face internally and externally on a day-to-day basis. In her article she presents possible solutions for Black women to have a better experience seeking medical professionals while feeling safe and comfortable reaching out for answers when it comes to neurodivergence.
