Rackham Student Government (RSG)

Student Spotlight: Naomi Wilson

Naomi is a second year graduate student in the Educational Studies-Foundations and Policy program. She came to U-M to work with Camille Wilson and is interested in black youth activism, revolutionary thought, and critical consciousness within secondary schools. She shares, “There is this need to be an activist in secondary schools for youth of color, but it is a place that can be a site of trauma and also of liberation and hope for black students. The lack of school administration response to issues around them can be jarring for students, specifically for the ones that are targeted. I want to focus on how to make educational spaces more inclusive, challenging policy and being critical of it at the same time.”

Student Spotlight: Jordan Rimsa

Jordan is not your typical nursing student. Supporting himself and his new bride as a self-taught software developer, he could easily continue and build his established business. He smiles as he says, “In case you can’t tell, I’m a people person. I don’t want to be isolated behind a desk, working on a computer. I have these social skills, a passion for healthcare and I’m interested in helping people – this led me to nursing.”

Coming to U-M straight from his nursing undergraduate degree at Wayne State University, Jordan is in his second year of a three year Master’s program at the School of Nursing in the Family Nurse Practitioner program with a concentration in occupational health.
