Sports, Homelife and School

Meet Alex! Her identity as a cis-gender woman influences how she experiences her day-to-day interactions. She considers how her mannerism and social pressures change depending on the social setting.

As part of her project, Shayla Hickerson organized interview-based discussions based on topics of gender, identity and social impacts.
