Danielle Miles-Langaigne (she/her) graduated summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, and a University Civic Scholar from the University of Pennsylvania. She studied Political Science and individually concentrated in Intersectionality Studies. Her honors thesis entitled “Demands for ‘Sisterly’ Love: Exploring the Hyperpenalization of Black Girls in the School District of Philadelphia” earned distinction within her major — as well as the Philo Bennett Prize within Penn’s Political Science Department and the College of Arts and Sciences’s Dean’s Scholars Award.
Danielle heavily prioritized community partnerships while at Penn as Co-Director of Programming for Ase Academy and a Policy Intern for Councilwoman Helen Gym. Her past internships and fellowships include places and organizations such as the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, Humanity in Action, and Black Girls Vote.
She aspires to continue her studies of intersectionality, specifically as it pertains to Black girls in schools, and the law within a JD/MA or JD/PhD dual-degree program.
