Millennium Fellowship Project: The Democracy Project
The Democracy Project is nonpartisan student activism organization that facilitates community participation in democracy, educates the community about democratic institutions, and connects students with avenues to have their voices heard. We have registered hundreds of students to vote, transported dozens to the polls, and regularly have dozens attend our educational forums. Our high on-campus voter participation is an emblem of our progress.
About the Millennium Fellow
I am a Biology and Philosophy double major, an aspiring bioethicist and attorney, and a proud Orlando native who has always been drawn to politics. I have worked in every level of politics, from activism groups to campaigns to Congress, because of a desire to make equal representation a reality. My love for political involvement is neither career-driven nor motivated by a desire to advance any particular ideology. Rather, I am committed to upholding the principles upon which our country was established, such as equality of opportunity, freedom of expression, and governmental accountability. In my free time, I paint.
