“I’m in a program called @jjayapplecorps and we focus on social justice and crime issues. My group focused on crime in Brooklyn, specifically in Brownsville, Sunset Park and Greenpoint. I live in Queens so I come from a neighbourhood where there’s little to no crime at all, so I was stepping out of my comfort zone. I was scared, but it was a good experience because not a lot of people get to do ethnographic research as a freshman. I got to have the experience to just go out there and understand that there are other neighbourhoods that need help. It’s not only about me caring for my own neighbourhood. It’s about caring for others as well.” — Shymaa, past presenter ———- “For my First Year Showcase, I was pretty nervous. It was one of the first times I’ve ever done something like this...but I also saw everyone else presenting, and everyone else was doing an amazing job and I wanted to be memorable just like them. So that kind of made me flip a switch like, “alright. I have to pull myself together. I want to make an impression on all these people.” —Joshua, past presenter #WayBackWednesday #FYShowcase #MyJohnJay #JJCStudents #JohnJayCollege #JJCResearch #HumansOfJohnJay

“My group’s project is based on the perception of crime related to littering in neighbourhoods. The reason we’re doing it is because there are wrong stereotypes put on neighbourhoods- just because the Sanitation Department doesn’t clean up, a neighbourhood is considered dangerous or criminal. These are wrong accusations...the people there are actually really nice! We try to break that stereotype. I’m very passionate about the issue because I’m all about connecting to the community as an auxiliary police officer. I’m trying my best to prove that the police is not that bad or brutal. There might be some individuals that don’t care about the life or feelings of others, but that’s not us. We’re volunteers. We’re not there for the money. We’re there because we’re actually passionate about it; we want to change the stereotypical belief towards a more positive one.” —Maral, First-Year Student Researcher • Learn more about Maral's group project at @jjaysasp 's First-Year Student Showcase this Thursday during community hour in the Student Dining Hall! #BehindThePoster #HumansOfJohnJay #FYShowcase #MyJohnJay #JJCResearch #JJCStudents #JohnJayCollege

“I’m presenting on police brutality victims- specifically whether the next-of-kin can file a federal civil rights lawsuit. The focus is particularly on black victims of police brutality. Personally, I really like to watch horror movies. Not the ghost types- the psychological ones. I thought it would be exciting to learn about this because we talked about it in class. I thought I could look at it as watching a horror movie, but then I found out after researching these cases, it’s very hard to digest. You can’t look at this like it’s a joke. Things that are happening in horror movies are actually happening in real life. It’s not “fun” anymore. Families are broken. When we need help, you’re supposed to find police, but now we don’t know who we can trust.” —Yi-Chen, First-Year Student Researcher Check out @tina07tina20 's poster presentation at @jjaysasp 's First-Year Student Showcase this Thursday during community hour in the Student Dining Hall! • #BehindThePoster #ForensicPsychology #HumansOfJohnJay #FYShowcase #MyJohnJay #JJCStudents #JohnJayCollege #JJCResearch @jjearlystart
