Spelman Student Briaja Gilbert, C’2024, Shares Why She is Spelman StrongSpelman student Briaja Gilbert, C’2024, shares what makes her Spelman Strong:

While completing my first year virtually, I maintained high grades, earning the Dean’s List and an invitation into the Honors Program. In addition to excelling academically, I managed to connect and build bonds with several of my Spelman sisters despite the distance between us.

I also joined several campus clubs while balancing an internship that gives me experience in my desired career. The pandemic brought about many challenges and took a lot from me, including my grandfather, but I mustered the strength to conquer the school year, making me Spelman Strong.

Gilbert, a psychology major, is currently a community and engagements intern at TheraPink for Girls.
