Oakwood student continues to make an impact

Tyler Brown, senior public relations and political science major, spent her summer as a Congressional Black Caucus intern in the office of Representative Elijah Cummings. She is a native of Washington, D.C.

During the summer of 2014, Brown accepted an internship with the United States Department of Justice at the Office on Violence Against Women. There she polished her skills in grant writing, while educating herself on pressing women’s issues. Visits to the White House coupled with opportunities to meet with many political activists, in tandem with the knowledge that she received from her internship, influenced Brown to change her career goals.

Last school year, Brown served as the editor of Oakwood’s newspaper, The Spreading Oak, and is currently a member of Phi Alpha Delta, a graphic design lab instructor, and a public relations writer.

Tyler currently holds the office of Senior Class Vice President. She also intends to continue her relationship with the Huntsville City Boys and Girls Club. After college, Brown plans on pursuing a dual JD/MA with a focus in public policy. She aspires to be employed by a crisis communications management firm in the DC metro area.
