Living with the quote “Be the change you want to see” in mind, Krystal Leaphart is an emerging Civil Rights leader. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Krystal was able to learn the values of service and advocacy through organizations like the Detroit NAACP Youth Council and Top Teens of America. After ranking number one in her graduating high school class, she went on to continue her education at Howard University in Washington, DC. While pursuing a degree in Legal Communications, and remaining active in the Howard University Chapter of the NAACP as President, she was able to take full advantage of the opportunities Washington, DC has to offer. Krystal has interned for her Congressman, Representative John Conyers, and at the NAACP Washington Bureau, which is the legislative arm of the organization. Krystal is looking forward to attending law school to pursue a career in human and civil rights law. She gives all glory to God and is happy to work with IMPACT!
