Akademi film menghadiahkan pengganti Oscar bersejarah Hattie McDaniel kepada Howard University


Aktris pendukung terbaik Hattie McDaniel Oscar pada tahun 1939 untuk “Gone With the Wind” adalah salah satu momen terpenting dalam sejarah Academy Award. McDaniel adalah orang Afrika-Amerika pertama yang memenangkan Oscar, dan butuh waktu setengah abad sebelum wanita kulit hitam lainnya kembali memenangkan penghargaan akting. Namun keberadaan penghargaannya sendiri sudah lama tidak diketahui.

Kini, Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences telah menciptakan pengganti Academy Award legendaris McDaniel yang dihadiahkan kepada Howard University. Setelah kematiannya pada tahun 1952, McDaniel mewariskan Oscar-nya ke Universitas Howard di mana Oscar tersebut dipajang di departemen drama hingga akhir tahun 60an.

Akademi film, bersama dengan Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, pada hari Selasa mengumumkan bahwa penghargaan pengganti akan disimpan di Sekolah Tinggi Seni Rupa Chadwick A. Boseman di universitas. Oscar akan diserahkan dalam upacara bertajuk “Hattie’s Come Home” pada 1 Oktober di kampus universitas Washington DC.

“Hattie McDaniel adalah seniman inovatif yang mengubah arah perfilman dan memengaruhi generasi artis yang mengikutinya. Kami sangat senang mempersembahkan pengganti Academy Award Hattie McDaniel kepada Howard University,” kata Jacqueline Stewart, presiden Academy Museum, dan Bill Kramer, kepala eksekutif akademi, dalam pernyataan bersama. “Kejadian penting ini akan merayakan kerajinan luar biasa dan kemenangan bersejarah Hattie McDaniel.”

Penghargaan McDaniel berupa sebuah plakat, bukan patung, seperti yang diterima semua pemenang akting pendukung dari tahun 1936 hingga 1942. Selama Academy Awards ke-12, McDaniel duduk di meja terpisah di ujung ruangan di Ambassador Hotel.

“Saya sangat berharap saya akan selalu menjadi penghargaan bagi ras saya dan industri film,” kata McDaniel saat menerima penghargaan tersebut. “Hatiku terlalu penuh untuk memberitahumu apa yang aku rasakan, dan izinkan aku mengucapkan terima kasih dan Tuhan memberkatimu.”

McDaniel meninggal pada tahun 1952 karena kanker payudara pada usia 59 tahun.

I delayed university to learn fashion designing — Goodnews

Emmanuel Goodnews, a stylist, creative designer and entrepreneur, is the founder of Just Icon. He tells FAITH AJAYI about his journey into the fashion business

What are your educational qualifications?

I have a degree in Political Science from Estam University, Cotonou, Republic of Benin.

Tell us about what you do.

My job includes creating, designing, monitoring production, styling, and documenting fashion. I went into this line of business, because I had always had a passion for fashion, so I felt the best thing was to learn the relevant skills after my secondary school education, while many of my peers were trying to get into the university.

How did you start the business?

The COVID-19 pandemic marked the beginning of my journey as a stylist and fashion designer. Having worked and interned at some fashion houses, I thought it was time I started making good use of my skills, and that led to my full exploration of the fashion space.

What are the major challenges you face in the business?

As a fashion entrepreneur, I have faced a lot of challenges. They include the country not having a well-structured fashion education system, to government policies that place restrictions on how people express themselves (in terms of what they wear). It has been challenging standing out against all odds.

Can you throw more light on how you overcome these challenges?

I have tried to overcome the challenges by constantly learning about fashion.

How do you advertise your brand and get customers?

People get to know about my work by virtue of the efforts I put into the creative production process. Sometimes, I also work with influencers and celebrities, such as Enioluwa Adeoluwa, Priscilla Ojo, Soft made it, Susan Pwajok, Allysny Audu, Badboytimz, Dikeh, and others, who connect more with my niche and help to put me on the map.

What are some of the notable achievements you’ve had?

Some of my notable achievements include being featured in American Vogue Magazine, GQ South Africa Magazine, Paper Magazine, and Malvie Magazine.

How do you handle difficult customers?

I don’t think I have had any bad experiences. It has been a journey of growth and lessons.

It is important to always be polite and professional. One should also respond to customers in a timely manner.

Did you undergo any form of training before getting into the business?

Yes, I underwent a couple of training before I dived fully into the fashion space. I learnt how to sew at a fashion school called, House of Benvicson. After that, I interned with Olajide Adedeji, aka Jide Reason, where I learnt more about corset and bust styling, and that helped me to better understand corsetry garments.

Have you ever thought of quitting?

No. Fashion is my way of expressing myself. It helps to tell who I am, and what I represent in the fashion space.

Do you have employees?

Yes, I have a creative team made up of talented individuals. I have four amazing and hard-working tailors, two assistants, and two project managers.

What are your other areas of interest?

I also have interest in travel and tourism.

How do you manage your business and still get the time to do other things?

For me, fashion is a way of life. It is a part of me. However, it is one thing to run a business, and it’s another to manage and structure it well, even while being creative and seeing it as a passion. I grew up in a family where business management was taken seriously. My mum is a businesswoman, and I grew up watching her handle her business. That has really helped me in positioning my brand for success.

What are some of the things that make your business stand out?

Some of the unique selling points of my brand are luxurious elegance, attention to detail, use of a range of boldly-toned colours, patterns, iconic silhouettes and garments, patterns and well-detailed pieces.

How old were you when you became a fashion designer?

After secondary school, I did not want to rush into the university, so I decided to learn fashion designing after secondary school. It took me one year and six months to learn about sewing and creating designs. However, I am still learning every day, and looking forward to gaining more knowledge about the industry.

Where do you see yourself and your brand in the next five years?

I see my brand growing and spreading globally.

As a fashion designer, what is your area of specialisation?

I design both male and female wears.

How do you like to dress?

I like to dress comfortably in clothes that express my personal style.

How do you unwind?

I do that by travelling and going on vacations.

At Michael Kors, Susquehanna intern pairs high fashion with philanthropy – Susquehanna University

August 18, 2023

Alanis Castro-Pacheco '25

Alanis Castro-Pacheco ’25Alanis Castro-Pacheco’s digital marketing internship with Michael Kors has introduced her to the world of high fashion – and impactful philanthropy.

Drawn to the company by its culture of philanthropy, she strengthened her social media and digital marketing skills while interning with Michael Kors and volunteering with the nonprofit organization its chief creative officer serves as a board member.

God’s Love We Deliver prepares and home-delivers nutritious, medically tailored meals for individuals who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. Castro-Pacheco helped to prepare food and packaged the items to be delivered.

“As a member of Greek life on campus, philanthropy and community are very important to me,” Castro-Pacheco said. “I’ve had the chance to volunteer with God’s Love We Deliver alongside my coworkers and managers, and that has allowed me to develop strong relationships with those around me.”

Her intern responsibilities varied from creating weekly and monthly reports that highlight competitors’ activity across different channels; assisting her managers with copywriting across mobile application pushes and mobile alerts, social media ads and affiliates; reviewing social media influencer casting lists; and pitching innovative targeting strategies to implement on current or upcoming programs.

“I also had the freedom to shadow other departments or individuals and even help out on projects outside of my expertise, which is always fun and informative,” she said.

Castro-Pacheco ’25, a double major in luxury brand marketing & management and graphic design from Enola, Pennsylvania, felt more than prepared to take on her impressive list of responsibilities due to her academic foundation and from her experience in programs like Break Through, an alumni networking event.

“Susquehanna’s luxury brand marketing & management program has helped me understand the goals and unspoken rules of luxury brands. The required classes through the Sigmund Weis School of Business, such as Principles of Marketing, provided a basic understanding of fundamental functions of my team and gave me a leg-up when it came to the terminology,” she said. “Because of these classes, I was able to confidently contribute to meetings and review analytics without help from my managers. The access to networking opportunities like Break Through has also prepared me to have conversations with industry professionals and speak about my accomplishments in an effective way to leave a lasting impression.”

Upon graduation, Castro-Pacheco hopes to obtain a full-time position as a marketing specialist, creative strategist or a junior graphic designer for a luxury brand.

Oxford University scientists’ camera to detect water on Moon

A state-of-the-art camera, which will help find water on the Moon, is set to embark on its first mission.

The Lunar Thermal Mapper, built by scientists at the University of Oxford, will help pinpoint the location and quantity of the Moon’s water.

The thermal imaging kit was installed on NASA’s Lunar Trailblazer spacecraft, a small satellite which will launch in 2024.

It is hoped the technology will inform future missions.

By measuring the same locations of the Moon at different times of day, Lunar Trailblazer will be able to detect if the amount of water changes.

It will track whether water is transformed into a gas as the surface heats up, or accumulates like frost in the shadowed regions as the surface cools down.

Scientists from the university’s Department of Physics believe the water could be used in a variety of ways, from purifying it as drinking water to processing it for fuel and breathable oxygen.

The cutting-edge equipment will work in combination with a high-resolution Volatiles and Minerals Moon Mapper.

Both pieces of kit were installed on the satellite, which measures 3.5m (11.5ft) wide with its solar panels fully deployed.

Prof Neil Bowles, instrument scientist at the University of Oxford’s Department of Physics, called the equipment “innovative”.

“The data from the mission will help us to understand how water is transported across the surface and potentially captured in cold traps near the lunar poles,” he added.

Libby Jackson, the UK Space Agency’s head of space exploration, hoped the mission would bring scientists a step closer in harnessing the Moon’s natural resources, which could support future expeditions.

She said: “It’s exciting to see the instrument finally ready and fitted for take-off after years of hard work by the team at Oxford.”

University presidents elevate free speech under new partnership

The presidents of a wide-ranging group of 13 universities are elevating free speech on their campuses this academic year, as part of a new nonprofit initiative announced Tuesday to combat what organizers call dire threats to U.S. democracy.

The Campus Call for Free Expression will take different forms on different campuses. The campaign, created by The Institute for Citizens & Scholars with funding from the Knight Foundation is designed to cultivate the freedom of expression on campuses and help students work together to find solutions to complicated, divisive problems.

“The national context of the deep political polarization, the inability of people to speak across difference in constructive and civil ways, it seems to me that colleges and universities need to be the institutions at the forefront of showing a better way to do that,” said Jonathan Alger, president of James Madison University, which is participating in the initiative.

The Institute for Citizens & Scholars first convened a group of college presidents in March 2022 to discuss how to prepare students to actively participate in democracy. Eventually, the presidents and schools committed to five principles of free expression along with new, on-campus programs that each school designed themselves. Those include new training at freshman orientations, faculty seminars and convocation remarks.

While not new, controversies around free speech at universities abound, from students protesting invited speakers to state legislatures targeting faculty tenure, and also reflect an increase in restrictions on freedom of speech more generally.

The participating schools include the University of Notre Dame, a private Catholic research school, Benedict College, a historically Black school in South Carolina, Rollins College, a small liberal arts school in Florida, and Ivy League member Cornell University, which in April announced that freedom of expression would be the theme for its 2023 school year.

Jonathan Holloway, president of Rutgers University in New Jersey and a historian of African American history, said he was motivated to join the initiative in part by what he called a growing deep disregard for American institutions.

“If I don’t speak up now on what I see that’s so concerning, if I don’t do this now, then when?” he asked, adding, “When I saw the Confederate battle flag marched through the Capitol Rotunda in January 2020, that’s when things shifted for me.”

This September, Holloway will lead a freshman course that will examine the meaning of democracy and ask students to help design a program for the university to improve civic education.

For Rajiv Vinnakota, president of the Institute for Citizens & Scholars, there are two main reasons to focus civic education on college students. For many, their colleges will be the most diverse community that they’ve ever experienced and students have the potential to shift social norms as they enter public forums and start to participate in politics. He hopes that the collective commitment of these schools to fostering critical thinking and the exchange of ideas around contentious issues will encourage other institutions to join them.

“Are we able to get above the cacophony of these issues of free expression to be able to get people in general (and) leaders to be able to see that higher ed can and should play a leading and proactive and positive role in civic preparedness?” Vinnakota asked.

The Knight Foundation provided a $250,000 grant to the institute to convene the presidents and eventually other university staff in a series of conversations over a year and a half.

“We believe in the free exchange of ideas. We believe in an informed citizenry so that the people may determine their true interest,” said Alberto Ibarguen, president of the foundation.

The nonprofit PEN America offers training to colleges and universities around cultivating an exchange of ideas as part of its work advocating for human rights and free speech. In general, Kristen Shahverdian, senior manager of its Free Expression and Education program, said that showing students why protections for free speech matter is an effective way to win over them to hearing about opposing views.

“When students learn about how writers and artists around the world have been persecuted for their free expression, they understand the ramifications of squashing another’s speech,” she said in response to emailed questions.

James Madison University is partnering with the Bipartisan Policy Center to host a training for more than 4,000 incoming students this year to prepare them for free expression on campus. The training will ask the students to participate in real time through a survey application and the school will also use their responses to help design future trainings. JMU already surveys new students about their civic engagement and repeats the assessment in their third year to measure student learning.

Lucas Morel, a professor of politics at Washington and Lee University and chair of the Academic Freedom Alliance, said more universities and colleges should embrace a mission of cultivating the pursuit of knowledge through the airing of different ideas and arguments based on evidence. A college education is not just meant to help students get a job or gain knowledge, but also to help make them engaged citizens, he said.

“If we don’t do a good job of helping them be careful readers and careful listeners, it stands to reason that as citizens they won’t be careful listeners and careful expressors of their own thought,” he said. “And it will be difficult for us to function as a self-governing society.”

After reported suicide of participant, human research studies suspended at psychiatric institute affiliated with Columbia University

The US Department of Health and Human Services has suspended research studies involving human subjects at a psychiatric institute affiliated with Columbia University after the suicide of a research participant, according to research documents.

A spokesperson for HHS told CNN on Thursday the agency’s Office for Human Research Protections was investigating the psychiatric institute “and has restricted its ability to conduct HHS-supported human subject research.”

“The Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) is committed to protecting the rights, welfare, and well-being of people participating in research conducted by or supported by HHS. OHRP takes very seriously the protection of people who volunteer for research studies and has procedures to ensure that those protections are in place,” the HHS spokesperson said in a statement to CNN.

The New York State Psychiatric Institute, which is affiliated with Columbia University, said it voluntarily paused all research studies involving human subjects in early June.

The investigation began after reports that a participant in a study testing a Parkinson’s drug for late-life depression died by suicide while enrolled in the study, according to a research document held by the US National Library of Medicine. The patient was part of a group of participants receiving a placebo rather than the medication, according to research documents.

When asked about the patient’s reported suicide, the psychiatric institute said it is unable to “provide specific details about any individual involved in a research study.”

The study was led by Dr. Bret R. Rutherford, who was an associate professor of psychiatry at Columbia University. It was funded by the National Institute of Mental Health. Rutherford’s research has received about $15 million in funding from NIMH since 2010, according to the US National Institutes of Health database.

According to New York State Psychiatric Institute, Rutherford resigned from his position there effective June 1, and he is no longer a Columbia faculty member. CNN has attempted to contact Rutherford for comment.

Rutherford began testing the central nervous system drug Levodopa as a medical treatment for late-life depression in 2018, according to documents on clinicaltrials.gov.

The central hypothesis of the institute’s study is that Levodopa could help alleviate late-life depression “by enhancing dopamine functioning in the brain and improving cognitive and motor slowing,” according to the study’s Protocol Summary Form.

For the eight-week trial, Rutherford aimed to recruit 90 adults ages 60 or older who had depressive disorder, decreased processing speed or decreased gait speed, as outlined in the Protocol Summary Form. In total, 51 participants were enrolled, according to documents on the trial.

Of the 51 participants, 20 subjects were found to be ineligible or did not continue in the study after enrolling, and the remaining 31 were divided into two groups, one of which received daily doses of Levodopa while the other was administered placebo doses, as indicated in documents regarding the study.

About two weeks after the New York State Psychiatric Institute’s pause, HHS restricted funding for research involving human subjects at the institute, according to a statement. The review is expected to be completed next month, according to an institute spokesperson.

A representative from the NIH, Amanda Fine, said the agency is in close collaboration with the Office for Human Research Protections, which is currently investigating. Fine said the NIH is unable to comment on matters currently under review.

Editor’s Note: If you or a loved one have contemplated suicide, call The 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline, formerly known as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, to connect with a trained counselor.

Police identify officers involved in fatal shooting near Boise State University last week

The Boise Police Department has identified the two officers involved in the shooting death of 54-year-old man near Boise State University last week.

Cpl. Andrew Johnson, a 23-year veteran of the force, and Officer Garrett Miller, who joined the department in 2021, fired their guns in the shooting of Boise resident Christian Johnson last Thursday in the parking lot of a Boise apartment complex. Police said Johnson charged the officers with several weapons, including a “sharp” or “hitched” weapon.

Boise police said they received a call at around 10:55 a.m. from Christian Johnson asking for assistance at the Morrison Park Apartments, where he lived. Police initially spoke to Johnson while he was on his balcony and officers were in the parking lot; Johnson then came downstairs and, Police Chief Ron Winegar said last week, charged at the officers.

Neither of the officers was injured, and Christian Johnson died at the scene, Winegar said.

The Meridian Police Department is leading the Critical Incident Task Force investigation of the shooting. It was the Boise Police Department’s sixth shooting this year, four of which have resulted in fatalities.

There have been at least eight police shootings in the Treasure Valley this year. Garden City Police Department officers fired multiple shots Wednesday morning after they heard and saw gunshots coming from inside a home. No one was injured, and an 18-year-old and a 16-year-old were arrested.

Suspect in University of Idaho killings was out driving alone around time of deaths, attorneys say

The man accused of killing four University of Idaho students went for a drive alone the night and morning before their bodies were found, his defense attorneys wrote in court documents.

Bryan Kohberger, 28, was indicted in May on four counts of murder and other charges in connection with the stabbing deaths of the four students who were found dead in a home off-campus on Nov. 13.

In a motion filed Wednesday by his attorneys objecting to a motion by the prosecution, Kohberger said he was out driving late Nov. 12 and into the next day.

“Mr. Kohberger has long had a habit of going for drives alone. Often he would go for drives at night. He did so late on November 12 and into November 13, 2022,” his attorneys wrote.

The bodies of the students — Ethan Chapin, Madison Mogen, Xana Kernodle and Kaylee Goncalves — were found in a home in Moscow, Idaho, after someone called 911 just before noon, authorities said.

Attorneys for Kohberger wrote in the motion filed Wednesday that Kohberger was driving into “the early morning hours” of Nov. 13. The motion does not specify a time.

Kohberger has pleaded not guilty.

His attorneys wrote in Wednesday’s motion that they will try and corroborate that Kohberger was not at the home where the bodies were found through expert witness testimony.

They said an analysis and their own investigation is underway.

The killings shocked the city of Moscow, population around 25,000, and the university of around 11,000 that calls it home

Kohberger was arrested in Pennsylvania early Dec. 30., more than six weeks after the killings.

His attorneys in Wednesday’s motion were responding to a motion by prosecutors to compel a “motive of defense of alibi.”

Kohberger’s attorneys wrote that “Mr. Kohberger was out driving alone” and that corroboration evidence may come from cross-examination of witnesses for the state, or presentations by defense experts.

Kohberger was a doctoral student at Washington State University in Pullman, around seven miles away from the University of Idaho. He had been in the criminal justice program there and was a teaching assistant in the fall 2022 semester, the university said.

He had graduated from nearby DeSales University in 2020 with a degree in psychology and earned a master of arts in criminal justice from DeSales in June 2022, that university has said.

Lulusan Southern Regional dan Princeton University mengaku bersalah atas perannya dalam kerusuhan 6 Januari

WASHINGTON – Larry Giberson, Sekolah Menengah Regional Selatan dan lulusan Universitas Princeton baru-baru ini yang didakwa mengambil bagian dalam serangan 6 Januari 2021 di Capitol A.S., mengaku bersalah minggu ini atas kejahatan kekacauan sipil.

Dalam perjanjian pembelaan yang dibuat dengan otoritas federal bulan lalu, Departemen Kehakiman akan membatalkan pelanggaran ringan terkait terhadap Giberson dan akan merekomendasikan hukuman 8 hingga 14 bulan penjara federal, denda dari $ 2.000 hingga $ 40.000, dan restitusi dalam jumlah $ 2.000 – perkiraan bagian Giberson dari hampir $ 2,9 juta dalam kerusakan Gedung Capitol. Namun, perjanjian tersebut mengakui bahwa faktor-faktor tertentu dapat mengakibatkan pengurangan hukuman 0 hingga 6 bulan. Selain itu, Giberson diizinkan untuk membuat kasus pada saat hukumannya bahwa tidak ada denda yang harus dikenakan. Dia juga setuju untuk bekerja sama dengan pihak berwenang dalam penyelidikan mereka yang sedang berlangsung atas peristiwa hari itu 2 1/2 tahun yang lalu.

Seandainya kasus itu dibawa ke pengadilan dan Giberson dinyatakan bersalah, dia menghadapi hukuman penjara maksimum lima tahun dan denda hingga $ 250.000, semuanya menurut catatan pengadilan.

Asbury Park Press telah menghubungi pengacara pembela Giberson yang berbasis di Washington, Charles Burnham, untuk memberikan komentar.

Giberson, 22, termasuk di antara para perusuh yang dituduh berulang kali terlibat dalam kekerasan terhadap petugas penegak hukum yang ditempatkan di pintu masuk “terowongan” Lower West Terrace di Capitol ketika sesi gabungan Kongres sedang berlangsung untuk mengesahkan hasil pemilihan presiden 2020.

Mahasiswa Universitas Princeton Larry Giberson, 21, dari Stafford, termasuk di antara para perusuh yang berulang kali terlibat dalam kekerasan terhadap petugas penegak hukum yang ditempatkan di Lower West Terrace “tunnel” pintu masuk Capitol, menurut pernyataan dari Departemen Kehakiman AS pada Selasa, 14 Maret 2023.

Mahasiswa Universitas Princeton Larry Giberson, 21, dari Stafford, termasuk di antara para perusuh yang berulang kali terlibat dalam kekerasan terhadap petugas penegak hukum yang ditempatkan di pintu masuk “terowongan” Lower West Terrace Capitol, menurut pernyataan dari Departemen Kehakiman AS pada Selasa, 14 Maret 2023.

Dalam sebuah wawancara dengan agen FBI di Princeton awal tahun ini dan di hadapan pengacaranya, Giberson mengakui bahwa dia adalah individu yang terlihat dalam beberapa foto dan klip video yang diposting online yang menunjukkan dia di Capitol selama kerusuhan.

Giberson memasuki terowongan pada pukul 3:08 sore pada 6 Januari, dan berjalan menuju bagian depan gerombolan perusuh. Dia kemudian bergabung dengan massa ketika mereka berusaha memaksa masuk ke gedung dengan mengoordinasikan upaya mendorong “heave-ho” terhadap garis polisi, menurut Departemen Kehakiman.

Giberson mengenakan topi bisbol biru dengan kata-kata “TRUMP – Make America Great Again” di atasnya, pelindung hitam dan abu-abu dengan bendera AS di atasnya, dan bendera Donald Trump di lehernya, menurut FBI.

Sementara Giberson berada di depan perusuh, mendorong petugas bersama-sama dengan perusuh lainnya, seorang petugas hancur di antara pintu dan perisai yang dipegang oleh perusuh, menurut penyelidikan atas perannya dalam serangan itu.

Beberapa menit kemudian, Giberson bergegas ke pintu masuk terowongan dan mulai melambaikan lebih banyak perusuh ke dalam terowongan. Dia kemudian kembali ke terowongan untuk berpartisipasi dalam putaran kedua dorongan terkoordinasi terhadap garis polisi. Akhirnya, petugas polisi bisa mendapatkan kontrol sementara atas terowongan dan mendorong keluar para perusuh, termasuk Giberson.

Sementara para perusuh terus mencoba dan mendapatkan kembali akses ke Capitol melalui terowongan, para perusuh menyeret seorang petugas ke kerumunan ketika Giberson berdiri dan menyaksikan petugas itu diserang dan terluka.

Ketika dia terus mengamati kekerasan yang semakin intensif di dalam dan di sekitar terowongan, Giberson mulai berteriak: “Seret mereka keluar!” Dia kemudian bersorak ketika “senjata dan semprotan merica” digunakan terhadap petugas di terowongan, semua menurut Departemen Kehakiman.

The Daily Princetonian, surat kabar mahasiswa Universitas Princeton, melaporkan pada bulan Juni bahwa Giberson lulus dari sekolah Ivy League dengan kelasnya musim semi ini, menerima gelar sarjana dalam politik, dan sertifikat dalam nilai-nilai dan kehidupan publik, dan bahasa Prancis.

Dalam sebuah pernyataan tertulis kepada surat kabar mahasiswa untuk artikel itu, Giberson mengatakan: “Saat ini, saya hanya mengejar beberapa proyek hasrat pribadi dan meluangkan waktu untuk diri saya sendiri, mencari kesimpulan definitif untuk bab kehidupan saya ini sebelum pindah ke yang berikutnya.”

Dia dijadwalkan akan dijatuhi hukuman di hadapan Hakim Pengadilan Distrik AS Carl J. Nichols di Washington pada 1 November dan tetap bebas untuk sementara.

Giberson lulus dari Southern Regional High School di Stafford pada tahun 2019.
