Share an inspiring story about your time at the Keller Center.
Alongside my team, I interviewed a famous advocate for an issue that I cared deeply about. Katie Fahey, an icon in the fight against gerrymandering, spoke to us for over an hour. She understood our mission as part of the Keller Center, and she was excited for us.
What advice would you have for students about getting involved at the Keller Center?
Through programs like the Tiger Challenge, students will gain tools that balance empathy with pragmatism. Students will learn how to address societal issues systematically, methodologically, so that the solutions they create are holistic, efficient, and-- most of all-- compassionate.
What are your academic or career goals?
I want to become a public servant who effects some measure of meaningful change on the wicked problems facing our nation. One day, I may run for office, or I may not, but I believe that government can be a force for good. Equitable reform is possible, and it is through the experiences we live and training we receive as young adults that arm us to open doors that have previously remained closed for those that need it most.
