Spotlight on Inclusive Excellence: Terrell DeShawn Roberts

Our November spotlight features Terrell DeShawn Roberts. Terrell is a fourth-year student majoring in History and Political Science with a minor in philosophy. Terrell is from Atlanta, Georgia, and has spent his time completely immersed in our UGA community! 

An active member of The Black Pre-Law Student Association, Georgia Daze, and an Ambassador for the School of Public and International Affairs, Terrell also works part-time at the Zell Miller Learning Center. He explained that the history program has played a crucial role in developing research, analytical, and communication skills that he has been able to apply to his life- academically and day-to-day. One of Terrell’s favorite memories as a history major?  Writing his recent senior thesis, which focused on the Stonewall Riots and the Gay Rights movement. His research allowed him to gain an understanding of the Gay Rights Movement and the events that ignited the revolution. 

Terrell fondly remembers his first football game too, and volunteering for the first time with Serve UGA. Serve UGA allowed Terrell to be an active member of the Athens-Clarke County community by volunteering at sites such as the Brooklyn Cemetery, Athens Human Society, and the Latin American Gardens. Providing service has shaped Terrell’s experience here at UGA by being able to make a positive impact on the place he has called home for four years. After graduating in the spring, he plans on attending law school with a concentration on the Real Estate sector to become a real estate attorney.
