You took part in a huge activist role on your campus, were you always this passionate?
Yes, definitely! I think throughout my life I have always had a passion for social justice issues and for speaking my mine, which oftentimes got me in trouble. In middle school, volunteering for the Obama ’08 campaign inspired me to be political at a young age and fueled my growing activist self. I was definitely the girl everyone called “feminazi” in high school, but I never let anything like that phases me. I’ve always been headstrong about my beliefs.
