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.
