Meet Jada Beasley '19

Kennedy Smith: Introduce yourself!

Jada Beasley: I’m Jada Beasley, more commonly known as Jada B! I’m from Chicago, IL. and I am a member of Agnes Scott’s third Posse. I like pizza, flowers, day naps, and scooping ice cream.

KS: What’s your major/minor?

JB: I am currently in the process of designing my own major in Film and Social Justice with a minor in Africana Studies.

 

KS: Did it change from what your major was when you first came to Agnes?

JB: Absolutely! I actually humored myself by initially intending on majoring in Neuroscience. I will say that my family at Agnes helped me to find what I was really passionate about.

 

KS: Do you remember when we first met?

JB: YES. I met you through another friend and we both thought you looked like Jurnee Smollett from the movie Roll Bounce! LOL.

KS: What did you want to be when you grew up? How has it changed now?

JB: Growing up, I wanted to be a lawyer. One summer my mom forced me to participate in a law school program and I immediately knew I had to escape. Once I knew the logistics of the job, I realized that I needed a career in which I could express myself while also helping others.

 

KS: Do you have plans to study abroad?

JB: I hope I’m able to study abroad during the summer of 2018, but I have no idea where to go. Help!

 

KS: What is your favorite place (city, room, restaurant)?

JB: The heart of Devin Morrison.

KS: How has going to a women’s college changed you (compared to if you went to a co-ed college)? Do you think it would have been just as easy to find your passion?

JB: Going to a women’s college has both empowered and inspired me. I am surrounded by so many amazing women and they inspire me to be my best self every day.

 

KS: If you could only wear one pair of shoes that you own, which ones would they be?

JB: My four-year-old black acid wash cloth converse for sure.

 

KS: What is your favorite movie on Netflix?

JB: Pulp Fiction

 

KS: What do you do during your study breaks?

JB: I either nap, binge watch any show I’m currently watching, or take a walk in the square.

 

KS: If you could learn three other languages right now, what would they be?

JB: French, Italian, and I would continue studying Arabic.

 

KS: How would you want to be remembered? Answer with five words or less!!
