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.

Ask our Past Authors:
I published with the Journal because I wanted to tell more on the story of the poster I created for Made in Millersville 2016. The poster can only tell so much; it is the journal article where one can go into specific details that might be obvious. My journal article was in conjunction of an independent research project through the department of earth sciences. I recommend it for any student. It’s great practice for writing specific articles, or any article for that matter!
So there was one really big reason for which I wanted to be published in the Made in Millersville Journal. As a child, I always loved writing and a life long dream of mine was to be published. I am so happy that my dream came true so early in my life because of this Journal. Again, thank you so much for the endless opportunities your organization provides.
I wanted to publish with the Journal because I waned to incorporate a new perspective about the black man. I wanted to challenge the stereotypes associated with black life and hip-hop. I wanted to open the door to align hip-hop with an intersectional framework so that I could help others understand that black men can be vulnerable. I just felt that it was necessary to incorporate a way that sees the black man as both vulnerable and masculine.
