*Sorry, I thought of more I'd like to add to my paragraph, so if possible, can you disregard the previous application and consider this one instead. I have been fascinated with criminal justice since I began tutoring at Garden State Youth Correctional Facility through Petey Greene in the fall of my freshman year. In the spring, I became a student leader for Petey Greene and took a journalism class called Media in America. In that class, I heard from the founder of The Marshall Project, a nonprofit news organization that exclusively covers criminal justice. I am now an avid reader of the site, but my understanding of criminal justice issues has been significantly deepened by my times as a tutor. I would love to now experience education in prison from another perspective. The opportunity this class provides is as big for Princeton students as it is for those incarcerated. Not only do I find the topic fascinating, but I also think taking a class with those incarcerated at Edna Mahan will provide me with a deeper understanding of the education system in prison and how I might better work to make a difference. My passion for journalism makes me excited to see how criminal justice can intersect with creative nonfiction. I have taken three classes in journalism at Princeton, and have spent the semester investigating prisoner transportation in New Jersey for my investigative journalism class. Education of prisoners and of the public is one of the most important ways in which we can improve the criminal justice system. I would love to be a part of this pilot program, and further my understanding of criminal justice issues.
