Brown, who was a part of The Plain Dealer's "Senior Standouts" Class of 2002, describes her transition from urban Cleveland to Hanover ten years later.


From the article:

 

 

 

 

"It was a huge adjustment," Brown says. "I had only been around poor people and black people and there I was in this whole new world that I had no idea existed."

 

 

But with the help of campus support groups, she says, Dartmouth turned out to be an incredible place for her to learn, grow and go to college. Brown, a Government major, was actively involved in the Rockefeller Center during her time at Dartmouth. Brown was a Rockefeller Leadership Fellow, attended Civic Skills Training in Washington, D.C. in June 2005 and received the McClory funded internship in the summer of 2005 and worked in the D.C. office of former U.S. Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones. Brown currently works for Challenge Day, a non-profit organization and presents on issues such as diversity, expression and bullying to high schools across the country.The Rockefeller Center extends its congratulations to Brown on her recent achievements.
