I am an American Democrat currently living abroad in Ontario, Canada, as I complete my PhD in Philosophy. I have been engaged in politics and activism since I was in high school. I remember lining up for hours to see Obama on the campaign trail for the 2008 election and immediately feeling inspired and pulled to be part of the process. As engaged as I have been, I recognize the responsibility on democrats to unite in the 2020 election to defeat the most dangerous president in US history and to protect our democracy. I am committed to being in the fight and doing everything I can. I also want to fight for particular issues I care about: health care access for all, eradicating student loan debt, LGBTQ+ justice, racial justice, criminal justice reform, and reproductive justice.
