Montgomery County Community College
Lands’ End Scholarship
Jennifer Faris was raised in a small town in Pennsylvania, within a conservative Christian society that heavily discriminated against the LGBTQ community. She lived with a sense of shame and closeted identity until she finally broke free of that repressive culture in 2015. Through an extensive pursuit of healing through the arts of meditation and yoga, Jennifer was able to rise up from the oppression of her past, and proudly identifies as bisexual.
