About Sheila McKinney

Sheila’s meticulous attention to detail and organizational skills made her a File Clerk at The Nieves Law Firm. Her ability to manage and maintain records efficiently ensures that crucial legal documents are readily accessible when needed. Whether it’s organizing case files, tracking court deadlines, or managing paperwork, Sheila’s dedication ensures a smooth workflow within the legal team.

Sheila is a freshman at Howard University and is deeply committed to her academic journey. Majoring in Political Science and minoring in African American Studies, she is driven by a fervent desire to create positive change. Sheila’s passion lies in addressing various forms of inequity, advocating for justice, and amplifying the voices of marginalized communities.

With her college degree as a stepping stone, Sheila has her sights set on acquiring her JD (Juris Doctor) to practice law. Her motivation is multifaceted: Sheila recognizes the urgent need for greater representation of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) within the legal profession. She aims to break down barriers and create pathways for aspiring BIPOC lawyers.

Additionally, she is acutely aware of the systemic issue of mass incarceration and its devastating impact on communities. Sheila seeks to be part of the solution by advocating for fair and just legal practices. The troubling phenomenon of the school-to-prison pipeline weighs heavily on her heart, and she is determined to dismantle this harmful cycle through legal advocacy and community engagement.

Beyond the classroom, Sheila’s activism takes poetic form. Through her powerful verses, she expresses radicalism, resilience, and unwavering commitment to fighting injustice. But her passions extend beyond the legal realm: she enjoys thought-provoking TV series, finds refuge in books, draws inspiration from anime narratives, and actively contributes to causes she believes in. Sheila McKinney is more than a file clerk; she’s an agent of change, weaving justice into every aspect of her life.
