Steven Fernandez

KIPP NYC Public Schools

Steven Fernandez is an alumna of KIPP Infinity Middle School in NYC. Growing up in NYC, Steven was quickly exposed to many troubles that plagued his local community. Anti-blackness, judicial injustice, and overall poverty were motifs that frequently made their way into his daily life. The societal issues impacting his community drove a desire to do something to make a change. Steven was motivated and joined the AACC or the Equal Justice Society and interned with the Eastern District in New York, where he could see these issues from a legal perspective. Having this transformative internship experience, Steven formally decided that he wanted to pursue a degree in political science at Stony Brooke University.
