• About:

      Becks Zimberg is a final-semester senior at Hunter College with a double major in Sociology and Gender Studies and double minor in Political Science and Public Policy. One of the main reasons why their capstone is heavily focused on evaluating chronically unfunded schools & burning the bridge between racialized educational outcomes is because they have been on both sides of the burning candle. As a young person of color adopted into a transracial family, they have seen educational racism firsthand and the great implications it has on academic success. They work actively in their community with other adopted children in support groups and high school-based associations.

      Following graduation, they hope to attend graduate school to receive their master’s in social work, working clinically with gender minority groups in health and mental health environments.
