She is interested in exploring the many intersections between psychology and law and implementing practical applications of this line of research. On campus, Keiana is a co-leader of Juvenile Empowerment, an initiative piloted by members of Kinetic, the college’s think-tank, to provide children and teenagers with valuable life skills through projects such as alternative sentencing programs. She is also a member of the Lehman Community Engagement volunteer group, and she dances and teaches gymnastics during her free time.
