Jahvaris Fulton has a great opportunity on his hands. The older brother of Trayvon Martin is currently serving as a congressional intern for Florida Representative Frederica Wilson. Her office confirmed the news to NBC.

Fulton, according to his Twitter page, attends Florida International University in Miami FL.

Wilson’s office also said that Fulton is a part of the 5000 Roll Models of Excellence Project. The project, founded by Wilson 20 years ago, is a drop out prevention and mentoring program that serves the needs of at-risk boys in Miami-Dade schools.

Good look to the young Mr. Fulton. It would be great if both he and Rachel Jeantel ended up working in law enforcement, hopefully fighting the injustices that were so evident in his brother’s case.

    This is awesome and one of the few good things to come from this tragedy. Maybe it’ll push him into becoming a congressman one day and change policies such as the stand your ground law. Whatever happens, his future is bright and I pray many follow in his footsteps. The only way we can make change is to elect our people into office to bring about that change.

    With all the criticism that has came from the verdict I’m delighted to see some positive things come from this. Good luck to Rachel and Jahvaris on their promising future.

    Good for him! I wish him well. But watch your back-make sure you have a licensed gun w/permit like GZ. If you are accosted by anyone (especially a white man or Latino) Shoot first & ask q’s later-Better for you to be safe-than sorry ( & alive). It seem that we are going back to the “cowboys & girls/shoot ’em up days”-so you have to be prepared!
