Hi! I’m Brock and I am a rising sophomore in the Commonwealth Honors College at UMass from New Bedford, Massachusetts. I am a Social Thought and Political Economy major and am focusing my academics on studying critical race theory and actively dismantling systems of white supremacy. I’m pumped to be living in Amherst this summer and hope to spend most of my time swimming, somewhere on a mountain, or eating Black Bean and Avocado pizza from Antonio’s (in any setting).
Brock’s Listening to: Alabama Shakes, MGMT, Tame Impala, and always Vampire Weekend
Brock’s Reading: Franny & Zoey by J.D. Salinger & Normal Life: Administrative Violence, Critical Trans Politics, and the Limits of Law by Dean Spade
Brock’s Watching: The Office (again), The Wire, and probably a BBC documentary (watch the one about bears ok)
