I am very excited to serve as an ambassador for SOA. I am a junior Sociology Major. Having changed my major to Sociology, I am aware of how rewarding and informative sociology can be as a student, especially during COVID. It revived my interest in academic pursuits. As an ambassador I want to help students learn about sociology, providing a chance for them to learn about this field. I would also like to network with students and faculty to improve interactions through the department. I can provide advice and guidance for classes and requirements to the major/minor of Sociology at ISU. I am here to help you!

My name is Jayden Wilburn-Johnson, and I am a junior at Illinois State University. I am apart of the Student Government Association and Black Student Union here at ISU. I am also a teacher's assistant for SOC 112 and Career Ambassador where I help students build their professional portfolio.

Learning about different cultures and meeting new people has always been my passion. Sociology has given me life skills no other major could offer. The study of social institutions and how they operate in today's world is valuable information I believe everyone should have knowledge about. You have to understand people to help people and sociology is all about people!
