Storm Stokes

Class of 2024
Undergraduate, Major

Storm Stokes is a member of the class of 2024, originally from Metro-Detroit, Michigan. She was drawn to the AAS department by the rich opportunity to utilize an interdisciplinary approach to her independent research while academically investing in discussions of personhood and justice she finds most relevant to her aspiration to work as an attorney in Transformative and Restorative Justice practices; and society at large. Courses in ancient Christianity, political ethics, and feminist narratives have inspired her to explore black (queer) personhood amidst the formation and early practices of Christian tradition. She simultaneously has maintained interest in public service, serving as an intern for the Congressional Black Caucus during the summer of 2022. Storm is also pursuing certificates in Dance and Gender and Sexuality Studies.

Outside of classes, Storm is an enthusiastic Writing Center Fellow and newly a member on the Writing Program's committee of Research and Pedagogy. Additionally, she writes curriculum for and facilitates dialogues centering social identity as a Fellow with the Carl A. Fields Center. More artistically, Storm serves as a dancer, choreographer, and co-Publicity Director for the acclaimed diSiac Dance Company, and won the "Outstanding Work by a Sophomore" Dance Department award Spring 2022.
