Georgia Women's Policy Institute Scholar - Kayla Forbes, C'2024

Kayla ForbesKayla Forbes is an upcoming junior at Spelman College, where she is majoring in Political Science on the pre-law track. Her interest in law and politics began in 2016 when she began interning at a courthouse in her home city, Brooklyn, New York. She learned about the school-to-prison pipeline and the inequalities that affected minority communities in Brooklyn and all over the world. Inspired by this experience, Forbes interned with the Kings County Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office and the Brennan Center for Justice. Both opportunities allowed her to explore different options within her career path. She enjoys competing in pageants and weightlifting when she is not busy reading about criminal justice affairs.
