My name is Amari Smith. I am a Junior majoring in Psychology with a minor in Human Relations. Currently, I am the Training & Development Director for Herky CARES. I'm from the west side of Chicago, IL. I chose to become a Hawkeye because I wanted to be exposed to a different environment than Chicago. I grew up in a city with lots of people and traffic. I wanted to get the small town experience that wasn't too far from home. In my opinion, social justice is a way of life. A life dedicated to advocating for others, promoting change and equality, and educating others on how to become better citizens of the world.
