Profile of Marcie Nicole Graham

Marcie Graham

By the time this extraordinary young woman celebrated her 21st birthday (in Ghana during her semester abroad with New York University (NYU)), she had already accomplished more than many people achieve in a lifetime. An involved member of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), she served as the chair of an important political action subcommittee of that organization. She was the Executive Director of the Mentoring Program of the NYU branch of the Women and Youth Supporting Each Other (WYSE).

Currently studying law at Yale Law School, Marcie applied and won for the Project its first ever grant when she served as a volunteer under the auspices of NYU's Community Service Program. She was instrumental in planning the Project's First Annual New Year's Resolution Fun Run/Walk and coordinated the recruitment and participation of volunteers from other Ghanaian universities. Her work with the Project was recognized with an NYU President's Service Award for Volunteerism.

Ms. Graham graduated from NYU as a University Honors Scholar and received the Kenneth Bromberg Memorial Award for scholarship and service. She was featured in Stealing Democracy by Spencer Overton for her voter registration activism with the NAACP's Youth and College Division. Marcie is clearly going places and destined for great things; we feel very fortunate that she has chosen to maintain and strengthen her ties to the Project.
