This New York Based Model Is Fighting Injustice With Education
Delila Graham, who goes by Lyla Emani/Blasian.Goods on Instagram is a 23 year old law student from the Soundview section of Bronx, NY. Growing up, her mother and grandmother were her biggest supporters & also responsible for sparking her interest in law/criminal justice at a early age. In the neighborhood she lived in, she would see black men get beat and harassed by the police often and also never solving the murders of her childhood friends, this fueled her dedication to fighting police brutality.
At the moment, she’s a pre law student finishing her senior year at John Jay College of Criminal Justice while also obtaining her real estate license. The type of law she wants to practice is law and entertainment & she plans to utilize her following base on Instagram to gain future clients. When she was 12, her aunt got her into doing modeling and expressing herself, she motivated her because she once got called for America Next Top Model, so now Delila models as a hobby.
COVID-19 has delayed the internship aspect of her education. Some internships are not occurring in person due to COVID-19 and she prefers to go to school in person over remote learning. Her goals for 2021 is to invest in more stocks, start working as a real estate agent and complete her senior year. 1 future project she has coming up is a podcast that will be based on conversations surrounding social culture, mental health issues, social justice issues etc, the podcast is geared towards her future career as a prosecutor attorney.
