Civil Rights Advocate, Police Accountability & Reform





Ajhani is a sophomore undergraduate student at Howard University and is a Criminology major, Spanish, and Legal Communication double minor. She has a deep passion and commitment towards issues surrounding social justice, especially in regards to race, gender, sexuality, and the numerous injustices by which our legal system is plagued. One of her proudest and most valuable experiences is when she co-led a returning citizens initiative in the DC Jail in which she curated resumes and hosted mock interviews to better prepare returning citizens for their integration back in to society. Another invaluable experience she has had is when she traveled to the Dominican Republic on a service trip and helped residents who are disadvantaged, of the Dominican Bateyes (sugar cane plantation communities), by assisting with legal documents to apply for citizenship along with other things such as handing out food to the community and toys to the children. Her career ambition is to combat injustice as a civil rights attorney.
