SUMMER PROGRAMS volunteer
Reid recently graduated from the University of Virginia with her BA having double-majored in Global Security and Justice, and French. She wrote her undergraduate thesis on the motivations of the Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram, during the period under the leadership of Abubakar Shekau. While her academic background is mostly focused on issues of foreign conflict, terrorism, and insurgency, she has always been passionate about issues of criminal justice. During her time at the University of Virginia she volunteered as a GED tutor at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail, and is extremely excited for this opportunity to continue to support people in reentry with Root and Rebound, and to learn more about the barriers and obstacles people in reentry face in California.
Reid’s happy place is on a couch, in front of a TV, with her dog Kimba on her lap, and a burrito in her hand. When she has to exercise, she prefers taking ballet classes at Berkeley Ballet Theater or hiking with her dog.
