STUDENT VOICES | CHYNN PRIZE FIRST-PLACE WINNER
By: Tiffany Melillo
Every day, regardless of what I do, I use forced labor.
No, I am not a plantation owner in the South during the Civil War, nor am I a current factory owner in Asia. Rather, I am a 21-year-old Fordham student from the Bronx. I grew up in a loving, middle-class family with happily married parents, a brother, and a cat. I do not fit the stereotype of someone who uses forced labor, but I assure you that I do.
