Secretary — Netherlands

I believe that our party needs to represent the people it serves and that it must be more inclusive. Public service is my biggest passion, for, how can one complain without putting forward the smallest amount of effort? . I want to help build a truly inclusive Democratic Party that captures the voices that represent the diversity of America. Pressing to make sure the voices of Americans Abroad are heard and included creating a truly unified party. We must not shun change, nor lack in inclusion, nor falter on platform. United we must resist and persist.


  • Books Abroad Reading Group - Global Women's Caucus

    You're warmly invited to join the GWC Books Abroad feminist reading group for our October meeting.

    At this meeting, we'll be discussing Claire Messud's The Woman Upstairs. Published in 2013, the novel chronicles the life of Nora Eldridge, a 37-year-old teacher, and artist. Intentionally single and fiercely independent, Nora struggles to toe the line between self-sufficiency and loneliness and eventually finds herself addicted to the affirming attention of new friends.

    This modern work is deeply saturated in the feminist literary tradition of Charlotte Brontë, Emily Dickinson, and Virginia Woolf. As the New York Times puts it, "This psychologically charged story feels like a liberation."

    We look forward to another excellent discussion with all of you on Sunday, October 20, 2019, at 7:30 am EST/1:30 pm CET on WebEx.

    When you RSVP, you will receive the information you need to connect to the book club. Please save this information.
