Recalling that first conversation as a child with her mum about why she had been named Marijuana Pepsi, she says: “My mother told me that your name will take you around the world.

     Marijuana was nine years old when she first realized she had an unconventional name. At school in Wisconsin she says it wasn’t just the other children who commented on it but the teachers, too. “Tell them your name honey,” they’d say.

     But in high school the inquisitive questions about an unusual name turned into hurtful comments. “When I was in fourth grade it was an oddity, but in high school it became bullying.

     “It gave them ammunition, and I had to put up with so much. One day I decided that’s it I’m not taking it anymore,” she says of her bullies.

     Last month she received her PhD in higher education leadership from Cardinal Stritch University in Wisconsin following her dissertation, “Black names in white classrooms- teacher behaviors and student perceptions”.

     “I’m asking the others what happened and they were like, ‘Marijuana look at the names, it’s the names, she can tell from the names she’s got the Black kids’, and it clicked and I thought this is ridiculous, I’m going to write about this.”

     She is now married and living with her husband and son in Illinois, working on a program to help college students.
