Sylise Hall is a born and raised San Diegan. She currently studies at San Diego Mesa college as a Social Work Major and intends to double major in Juvenile Criminal Justice. She is passionate about children and underprivileged youth. Sylise grew up in City Heights and lived with a single mother. She gained her strong work ethic from watching her mom work hard to support their family of three without ever giving up. Sylise first became involved with activism after the death of Trayvon Martin. This event inspired her to learn how she could make a change for social justice. She now is a member of the Black Student Justice Coalition, who are currently fighting to make a change in police practices and are advocates for social justice.
