Jillian Turner is a senior at the college of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Her field of study is Social Justice and Advocacy with a minor in Business Management and Organizational Leadership. Jillian has long-been passionate about issues of justice and inequality. Specifically, she is passionate about advocating for children who do not have the means or representative voices to do so themselves. The Children’s Defense Fund has been the perfect place to learn from others, both superiors and peers, with regard to child advocacy and ways to make a difference. She views education as a means of transcending socioeconomic and structural limitations. In the future she plans to work in the school system as an advocate for students in underserved communities.
