Rising senior, Kara Smith, is a LA Times High School Insider intern and Editor-in-Chief of the Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies High School newsletter. Attending a predominantly non-black high school, she enjoys writing about issues in the African American community and about black women, working to dismantle the ongoing prejudice many dark-skin black women experience. Smith also enjoys learning about different cultures and has a soft spot for mochi, and vegan Jamaican food (yes it’s a thing). Smith plans on majoring in journalism and biology in college and attending chiropractic school.
