Priscilla earned the title of Magna Cum Laude on her Bachelor of Arts degree from Old Dominion University in 2018, while majoring in the field of Communication with a concentration in Public Relations, Persuasion, and Advocacy. Priscilla is presently studying within the Master of Arts Lifespan & Digital Communication Program at Old Dominion University, in addition to earning a Women’s Studies Graduate Certificate. Priscilla will complete her Master of Arts project in the spring of 2021 and will graduate in May 2021. 
Priscilla is passionate about critically analyzing and exploring themes pertaining to disability media studies, gender, femininity, branding and toys, disability pop-culture, and the lifespan representation of bodies with disabilities (adult manikins, public art, and children’s toys) advertised and marketed to consumers. Priscilla will pursue her passions on a local level, by studying everyday life scenarios for students with disabilities on the Old Dominion University campus and the digital disability media technology resources offered. Priscilla aspires to attain an entrepreneurial leadership position within the military, or public retail and marketing sector, by digitally advocating for the modification of traditional manikins from a lifespan perspective while embodying carbon fiber limbs, hearing aids, holding service animals, and displaying other conditions, in order to inspire social justice and body positive activism campaigns upon the completion of her Master of Arts degree.
