CHAPEL HILL CARRBORO NAACP
My name is Aliyah Ferrell. I've been living in the Chapel Hill area for almost 8 years. I am currently a sophomore at Chapel Hill High School. I play varsity basketball and softball for my school. Some clubs that I am in are Multicultural Student Achievement Network (MSAN), Youth Leadership Institute (YLI), Latin Club, and Varsity Club. Experiences in my community have lead me to pursue equality for all races. That is why I became a member of the NAACP: to use my voice to tear down discrimination in the classroom, in our communities, and in our country.
Youth council meets on the 1st Saturday of each month at 10:30am at YouthWorx in Carrboro.
