Tyrese Rice is a Broken Arrow High School graduate and current sophomore at OSU-OKC studying Technical Spanish. He hopes to later study international relations and linguistics in order to build bridges between nations and cultures in order to incite universal respect and kindness among all peoples. Being a bi-racially black American and a Muslim revert, Tyrese sees injustice through several facets. For this, he has the passion and will to fight for and stand up for the rights of any oppressed group when they cannot do it for themselves. Tyrese has experience volunteering with the Islamic Society of Tulsa as a child mentor during Ramadan and currently works as a paraprofessional teacher for children with severe and profound disabilities at Bridgestone Intermediate Center in Oklahoma City.
