Hello! My name is Faith, and I just started as a research intern here at RepresentWomen. I’m in Washington for the Semester, but this is not my first time here by a long shot. My (twin) sister moved to the area a few years ago, and I have since repeatedly come to visit. I am a Political Science with a Pre-Law track and a minor in Religion at Marietta College, currently attend AU’s Washington Semester Program with a concentration in Foreign Policy. During my time so far at Marietta College I have been involved with multiple organizations in varying capacities. My favorite being my role as vice-president of the LGBTQIA+ Activism Club.
My experiences while growing up, and the people I have been exposed to, led me to begin advocating for and understanding equality across all sectionalities. Though I am not a huge fan of labels, the one of Feminist is one I gladly take on. When it comes to women and those who do not identify as male on the gender spectrum I wish to help promote their voices to give accurate representation within politics. That’s why I am so excited to start my work here at RepresentWomen.
During the time I am not obligated to be somewhere you can find me playing board games with my family, reading in various places of the city, and studying/researching topics I am interested in (like gender parity in politics).
To end this post about me here is a string of words that I like to live by:
“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.” - Article I of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Goodbye for now!
