Joi a native to Memphis, TN, is a senior Social Work student attending Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. As a mental health advocate and stigma-fighter, she has ignited a movement to prioritize student mental health on her campus. Starting with a petition to hire more counselors for their understaffed counseling department, Joi started the conversation about the importance of student mental health. She is the founding president of Fight Club, a student-led mental health support group that creates a safe place for students to share experiences, support each other, and learn more about mental health. She plans to go on to graduate school next year and earn her Master’s in Social Work, with a concentration in clinical mental health.
