Ravynn Stringfield, Ph.D.

Hi, I’m Ravynn!

Some time around October [2015] I decided that I was going to grad school. Unlike applying to undergrad, I did not have my ducks in a row. I hustled and hurried and scrambled to get my documents in order. In the end, I’ll admit that I didn’t do as much research as I should have. But never mind how I got here; the point is, now I’m here. A Black girl who broke into the Academy by way of a Masters/Ph.D. program in American Studies.

To anyone who read any of the 194 Black Girl Does Grad School posts, followed along with my journey, or became part of it in some other way: thank you.

With love,

Ravynn K. Stringfield, Ph.D.
