Jada has used social media and blogs to create educational content on social justice and human rights, with the goal of connecting presenting issues to their structural roots through dialogue with young, marginalized people. She aims to carry this experience into their academic research, creating and maintaining a strong connection between the academic community and the marginalized communities, movements, and individuals who are deeply affected by the institutions they seek to critique and deconstruct. She is driven to amplify representation and excited to engage with trans creators their media.
