"In the Texas Prison Museum they have a prison cell. You can go to the front desk to get a striped jumpsuit and take pictures in this prison cell while you wear the jumpsuit. Next to this prison cell is the electric chair that was used for decades to execute people. I was shocked by the juxtaposition - this prison cell effectively making fun of prisoners and just a couple meters away a tool used to horrifically execute people."

Two thirds of the way through her internship, Bukunmi reflects on what she has experienced so far. "I came because I was/am interested in helping the fight towards justice and standing with those that do not have many on their side. I may not have done anything 'exciting' but this work often isn't exciting or glamorous and my internship has helped me to examine my motives. Now when I say I am interested in this type of work, it is for the right reasons."
