Jennifer's Story

About Jennifer

Jen Brooks, originally from Atlanta Georgia, graduated from Grinnell College in 2015 with a BA in sociology. Jen was the third Grinnell student in recent years that used a wheelchair. She also needed full-time personal care attendant (PCA) services and a communication aid in the classroom. During her time at Grinnell Jen had the opportunity to explore her passion for activism, hone her skills as a researcher (through her two internships), and develop independent living skills.
