Why did you apply to be a member of the FCC?
I applied to be a member of the FCC because I am interested in working with like-minded student leaders to come up with effective ways to increase awareness of sexual violence on college campuses. It is easier to spread a message with a group of people behind you, and I feel that the FCC has the power to work as a united voice that is stronger than my individual voice.
What is the greatest challenge you have found in getting your peers and/or university to discuss sexual assault?
My university is really small and the number of reported sexual assaults for the past year was less than 3. Because of this statistic, students don’t think that sexual violence is a problem on our campus and are unresponsive to discussions about it, even though the majority of sexual assaults go unreported. I hope that the campus attitude changes in the future and more constructive discussions can be held.
After graduation you plan to?
I plan to go to law school.
In ten years you will be?
Hopefully I will be working either as a lawyer in the public sector defending underprivileged citizens or as a lawyer in the private sector focusing on law suits relating to health care law.
