Memes, Moonlight, and 🤖: 12-Year-Old 'Moonlight' Star Wants To Spend Acting Money On Cancer Research soul ja4 “Moonlight” actor Alex R.

Advertisement AdChoices In speaking with film site HeyUGuys.com, the 12-year-old actor dished on his early career aspirations to become a football player and a scientist in search of a cure for cancer. “In middle school I didn’t know what to do with my life,” he said. “I was a bit of a bad child, I’d always get in trouble because I had a lot of movement. But the drama program settled me down, I can use my movement for good.” The South Florida-native has earned praises from critics and co-stars for his performance of Little, a younger portrayal of the film’s lead character Chiron, who struggles growing up in Miami’s Liberty City neighborhood. Hibbert’s “Moonlight” co-star Mahershala Ali called Hibbert the “best” scene partner he’s ever worked with. Now with a bright acting career on the horizon, Hibbert went on to tell the site that he plans to put his earnings towards science. “Football is out of the question now, but scientist-wise, I’m going to take most of my money… Wait, some of my money, and build a lab,” he said. “And I’m going to take the best scientists to work on curing cancer and stuff like that.” Kudos to Alex for making the world a better place! @lt_or_bust 17thsoulja blackexcellence BlackIG17th supportblackart supportblackyouth

LinkedIn, Memes, and Phenomenal: Harvard Law Review Elects 1st Black Female President in Its 130-Year History 17th soulja4 The Harvard Law Review has elected the first black woman to serve as president in the legal journal’s 130-year history. ImeIme A. Umana, a native of Harrisburg, Pa., will serve as the 131st leader of the organization. The Harvard Crimson reports that as an undergraduate at Harvard, she double-majored in government and African-American studies. She graduated in 2014 and is expecting to receive her J.D. in 2018, according to her LinkedIn profile.In an email to the Crimson, outgoing Law Review President Michael L. Zuckerman wrote that he is excited to see where Umana takes the publication in the coming year. “ImeIme is one of the most brilliant, thoughtful, and caring people I’ve met, and the Law Review is in phenomenally good hands,” Zuckerman wrote. Umana was selected from a field of 12 candidates, eight of whom were women and eight of whom were people of color, according to Zuckerman. All candidates for president must answer questions from a forum of editors, write responses to submitted questions and participate in mock editorial activities. “ImeIme’s election as the Law Review’s first female black president is historic,” Zuckerman wrote. “For a field in which women and people of color have for too much of our past been marginalized or underrepresented, her election is an important and encouraging step toward a richer and more inclusive legal conversation.”In her job as president, Umana will oversee the work of 90 student editors and staff members as well as communicate with a group of writers that includes faculty members. “Knowing ImeIme, I can’t wait to applaud her in a year’s time for the extraordinary work that I am certain she will do,” Zuckerman wrote. The Crimson reports that Umana’s election comes just as the Law Review seeks to accept editors from a wider variety of backgrounds. Last year it elected the most diverse class of editors in its history. In addition, in 2013 the journal expanded its affirmative action policy to include gender as a factor in its admissions process. 17thsoulja BlackIG17th blackexcellence
