Meet the Team: Paige Chan

By RepresentWomen on June 23, 2021

Hi! My name is Paige Chan, and I am a Research Intern at RepresentWomen. I recently graduated summa cum laude from Rutgers University - New Brunswick with a double degree in Political Science and Philosophy. Growing up, I always knew I wanted to work in politics, but I was confused about how exactly to apply myself outside of the stereotypical working on a campaign or as a representative. It was at Rutgers University that I discovered that research was a career pathway that satisfied both my desire to make a difference and my personal strengths.

Meet the Team: Noelle Curtis

By RepresentWomen on June 23, 2021

My name is Noelle Curtis, and I am a rising senior at Johns Hopkins University majoring in International Studies. For as long as I can remember, I have always been drawn to politics and international affairs. However, it wasn’t until I took a course on Gender and Modernity this past spring that I was inspired to get involved with advocacy for gender equality. Learning about the many cultural norms and institutional and political practices that reinforce gender inequality in the U.S. and abroad led me to RepresentWomen and the important work they do on a daily basis. As a Korean American woman who is extremely passionate about these issues along with diversity, racial justice, and AAPI issues, I wanted to learn how I could contribute to these spaces and voice these passions.

Hello, my name is Fadhilah Fitri Primandari. I am a political science graduate from Universitas Indonesia, and my research interests center on the gendered aspects of democratization and democratic consolidation, feminist institutionalism, and feminist methodology.
