Jessica T. Brown (B.S. '18)
Jessica joined Texas State University as a nontraditional, first-generation student in 2016. "As a Guyanese American, being the first in my immediate family to graduate college was everything for me," she says. While at Texas State, she worked as the first full-time marketing and communications coordinator for the environmental nonprofit TreeFolks. In 2020, she was accepted into the University of Oregon's environmental studies master's program and is studying storytelling's ability to help heal landscapes and communities. This summer, she will launch a nonprofit organization, Fernland, focused on transforming environmentalism through art and education.
