Alerya Jackson, Full-Time Law Firm Intern
Alerya is a Senior Criminal Justice major with a minor in Sociology attending Alabama Agricultural & Mechanical University. Her aspiration in life is to give back to the African American community by bringing awareness to how important family is through an aspiring career as a Family Law Attorney. Family has a significant influence on a person’s life from their behavior to their development. As Drexel Deal said, “Everything starts at home.” Family is important to her so she can imagine how important family can be to others, whether that family is blood or chosen. In ways, Alerya has already started giving back to the black community. For her second term as Service Vice President and Miss of Gamma Sigma Sigma National Service Sorority, she helps assemble college/university students in the spirit of service. She also helps fundraise money for children with cancer through Gamma Sigma Sigma’s yearly collaboration with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. She is a member of the Voluptuous Bulldog Beauties helping to promote the well-being and confidence of plus-sized women. Furthermore, she is elated to serve as a law intern for Neena R. Speer Law Firm. With the guidance of Neena R. Speer Law Firm, she is certain that she will progressively learn and establish essential skills to make a significant impact in the African American community.
