Breana Welch currently works as a Records Analyst at the DEA. She is a 2019 graduate of Bowie State University, where she studied Criminal Justice with a concentration in Social Justice. In her undergraduate career, Welch served as Bowie State University’s Criminal Justice Club’s Secretary and Vice President. She joined the AW Center in Fall 2018 as an undergraduate research assistant and stayed with the Center until Spring 2019. 


Breanna says:

Working at the Center has impacted me in many ways; I created a panel of returned citizens to speak about their transition from being incarcerated to re-entering into society at my college. I became more outspoken on the issues black people face, I participated in social justice marches and movements wanting to be a part of change, as far as voicing my opinion. I was motivated to apply to law school with the help of Judge Williams and furthering my education in social justice. Had it not been for my opportunity to work at the Center I would not have the passion for change as I do today.
