Focused, motivated, and curious about the people around her, Clemesha Jámilah Grayer has the world at her fingertips as she studies the human experience. Grayer, a 2017 UMN graduate, is from Chicago, Illinois, and double-majored in Chicano & Latino studies and gender, women & sexuality studies (GWSS).
Grayer found her passion in a women’s studies course she took in high school, becoming intrigued by the storytelling, narratives, and human experiences she encountered in that class. “I knew that I wanted to get into something that I was interested in, but was also very relevant to me . . . to find out more about myself and about the world around me.” Grayer explains.
