Florida Collegiate Consortium Super Star!

Claire

One of the reasons the Collegiate Consortium is so important to One Student is the impact we believe campus stakeholders can have on social change. We have been impressed by the caliber of our student leaders and their commitment to the issue of reducing sexual assault and shifting the paradigm across Florida (and eventually the nation). So when Becca Tieder, Founder of One Student and the Director of the Collegiate Consortium spoke with Claire  Armagnac, a senior at Stetson University who happens to be a fabulous peer educator, LSAT slayer and all around rock star- Becca was nothing short of impressed with her candor and professionalism. It should be noted Claire took time to do the interview while vacationing in Hawaii. Now that is dedication.  

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.
