Aisja Cunningham is a junior from Washington, D.C. Here at Lincoln, she studies Mass Communications with a minor in Black Studies in pursuit of a career in broadcast journalism. Aisja strives to be a positive representation of black women in media. As a journalist, she will address the social justice issues Lincoln students face within today’s society. As a young, black, woman journalist, she aspires to provide a voice to the unheard and underrepresented because, for years, media outlets that do not represent this demographic have manipulated their stories and voices were left unheard.
Alex Badillo is a 21 year old Junior from Philadelphia, PA. At Lincoln University, he studies Mass Communications with a concentration in Strategic Communication. Alex has aspirations to work in Media Advertising and Marketing. As a charismatic student at Lincoln University, Alex aims to find the fun and humor in all that he does. He currently serves as the standing Treasurer of P.S.U (People Standing United) for the 2018- 2019 academic school year. As a photographer, Alex plans to capture not only the students of Lincoln University, but to capture all of the memories made by the students during their time spent at Lincoln in hopes these images will live on forever. Alongside his photography, Alex brings forth his new and upcoming project named “The Minds of Lincoln”. He found inspiration for this project from Brandon Stanton, the founder of “ Humans Of New York”.
Gabrielle Powell is a Mass Communication major, a freelance photographer and she aspires to one day be a news anchor. She attends Lincoln University of PA as a Junior, where she will be graduating with a BA in mass communication May of 2020. As the prominent Malcolm X states, “The most disrespected woman in America, is the Black Woman. The most unprotected person in America is the Black Woman. The most neglected person in America is the Black Woman”. Being a Black woman in America can take a toll and can sometimes affect African American women health and well being. With her degree, through her photography, and as a Lincolnian writer; she will use each platform as an opportunity to empower Black women, especially Black women from HBCUs, in every way possible. As a Lincolnian writer, she will inform her readers of resources on and off campus that will warrant all positive vibes for Black women through self-care tips, poems, informational articles, articles giving advice, study tips and etc. As one of her favorite womanist states “If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.” – Audre Lorde.
