My name is Jamal Hyrams. I live in Waxhaw, NC. I graduated from Marshall University in 2018 with a Regents Bachelor of Arts degree. I like to read books, play video games, and play trading card games in my spare time. During this YAV year I look forward to serving in such an immersive environment that will give me the opportunity to experience another way of using my gifts and talents. In addition, given the political and social upheaval of the past couple of years, I feel led to do more to help heal our country.
