Hi my name is Creyona Baldwin, I am 18 years old and from Toledo, Ohio. I will be attending Xavier University of Louisiana in the fall. This summer I had the opportunity to intern with the NAACP Youth & College Division. My experience with the NAACP was a great experience. Before this summer I barely knew what the NAACP was about or what they did. Through my experience I’ve learned about the associations structure and how the NAACP operates. My experience inspired me so much that I became a member. As an incoming freshman I look forward to affiliating with the college chapter at Xavier.
