Personal Political Philosophy
My “must read” title for college students seeking to understand something about this election: I would recommend college students read Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale because it uses satire to critique social issues that are still important today, especially during this election. It’s just an amazing book that everyone should read to better understand the society in which we live.
My approach to or philosophy of American politics and elections: “Vote your conscience!”
The four (4) people (living or deceased) I would invite to dinner for the purpose of better understanding American political life are: George Washington (duh), Michelle Obama (also duh), Sandra Day O’Connor, Franklin D. Roosevelt
Wake the Vote Experience
My most memorable Wake the Vote experience so far: I’m so excited to be a member of the Wake the Vote cohort with all of these AMAZING future politicians!! Even though I’ve only been on the cohort for a few weeks I’ve already made memories that will last me a lifetime. Just recently I had the amazing opportunity to meet Chelsea Clinton and I was interviewed by the Winston-Salem Journal! Those are two things that I can check off my bucket list. I’m so pumped for this election and I can’t wait to follow it with all of these amazing people. This semester is going to be great and I can’t wait to make some glorious memories!!!!!
