Eli is a 17-year-old senior from Brooklyn who currently attends Brooklyn Technical High School. His interests include creative writing, reading, listening to music and political science. Some of his favorite authors and artists are James Baldwin, J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar. In the future, he aspire to be a lawyer, most specifically a defense attorney, to help keep people out of jail and hopefully educate others as well as himself in marginalized communities about laws in our lives and the importance of them. He hopes to inspire others to become more aware of their actions and eventually make the world an equal place for all.
