Congratulations Robert Luke Joseph '20! The Princeton Prize in Race Relations, PPRR, (Atlanta Region Committee) and the Princeton Club of Georgia, have awarded Robert a certificate of accomplishment for outstanding work in his community in race relations.
Robert is a member of AIS Student Council and Co-Leader of the AIS Student Culture Committee (SCC), a group designed to promote diversity, inclusion, and cultural awareness in the school community. SCC does this through formal presentations and didactics focusing on topics including nuances of race relations globally, affirmative action in the admissions processes, and by highlighting the significance of certain cultural events, including Black History Month, Cinco de Mayo, and Día de Los Muertos.
As the creator of a video game called ‘Race,’ Robert highlighted the ways in which the video game industry traditionally marginalizes and stereotypes people of color. He presented ‘Race’ at an AIS event, resulting in 500+ faculty, staff and students interacting with the platform, his work has gained both local and national award recognition.
Robert plans to focus on interactive-media design at college and says his design philosophy is, ‘...not just about solving the problem, it is about doing it, emphasizing creative play and inspiring community and inclusion.’
