Originally from the Midwest, I have remained passionate about helping people through political action since childhood. I currently live in Stavanger, Norway, and am finishing a PhD in political communication and MA in political science from the University of Kansas. I have traveled extensively throughout Europe and the Middle East, living for brief stints in Luxembourg, Kosovo, and Jordan. As your delegate, I will ardently advocate for those of us abroad. Voting rights and mobilization are particularly important to me; I hope to use this platform to both increase awareness of democratic participation from abroad and raise issues particular to us as expats. Electing Joe Biden is crucial to repairing both our nation and its relations with the countries where we presently reside, and I would be honored to represent you at the convention that nominates him.
