Micayla Smith

DAG Chapter Development Coordinator Candidate and DAG DPCA Voting Representative Candidate

Gender: (F)

Hello everyone! My name is Micayla (She/ Her). Born in 1996 & raised in Tacoma, Washington, I have been calling Berlin home since 2017. For the last few years, I have been active with local organizations supporting migrant families in Berlin and a grassroots project providing procedural/ legal advice/ counselling to migrants experiencing police harassment. I care deeply about migratory issues, socio-economic inequalities, gender politics and the climate crisis. These issues are timely and deeply interconnected. This spring, I will graduate with an MA in Political Economy of European Integration. Studying the European multi-level governance, vast accomplishments of the welfare state in Europe, I have gained new outlooks on good governance and efficient polities. The regional politics I am involved in have led me to think internationally and run for DPCA Voting Rep. As a DPCA Voting Rep, I would activate our national board on said social issues, be a voice for other young people and bring about a future the common folx want & need. The U.S. is experiencing social, political and ideological transitions right now. DAG is a suitable space for those abroad to discuss, mobilize and collaborate on issues affecting us all. My newness to the Democrats Abroad Germany is an opportunity to contribute fresh eyes and innovative ideas to a team of Visionaries. Together we can harness democratic progressivism with passion for a sustainable and equitable future. If you would like to follow up for a chat or have any questions, please contact me at [email protected] Thanks for your consideration & I look forward to serving as a DAG DPCA Voting Representative!
