Biography

I am a rising senior at Duke University, majoring in Biophysics and in Philosophy, and working towards my certificate in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics. I’m originally from St. Louis, Missouri, and I’m interested in attending law school after I graduate. Before attending Duke, I graduated from St. Louis Priory High School, where I developed a keen interest in theology, philosophy, and language. I’m an avid reader, pianist, and St. Louis Blues fan. I’m delighted to spend this summer working for the Center for Family and Human Rights, where I hope to contribute to critical work defending the most vulnerable in our world

Thoughts

There is a lot of critical work to be done protecting the sanctity of life and the family, and there are never enough hands on deck—so I’m privileged to work with the Center for Family and Human Rights this summer in this important mission. Through prayer, study, effort, and intellect, it is entirely achievable to champion human rights and defend life before the US government and the world, and I’m looking forward to making whatever contribution I can to that effort. IYC has an important role to play here: this message of life, love, and joy needs to be spread to hearts of anyone within reach, especially as secularism tries to pull the world in a different direction. I’m hopeful that, by the grace of God, I can make some difference in this goal.

The premise of the show alone—a conservative, a centrist, and a liberal discussing relevant politics—keeps the […]

At the heart of the self-declared “high-level” forum are a comprehensive list of 17 “Sustainable Development Goals” […]

“Good Parenting Builds Society”

Last week, the UN hosted an event right up C-Fam’s alley on the UN Global Day of Parents. Hosted in part by the Holy See, the meeting pulled no punches, beginning with the headline: “Good Parenting Builds Society: The Importance of Motherhood and Fatherhood.” While I’m sure that all kinds of good work is being […]

First Take: UN Advocacy

This is my first time blogging for the International Youth Coalition (IYC), which I’ve been asked to do each week in my work as an intern for the Center for Family and Human Rights (C-Fam). The Coalition seems to boast a large number of writers, topics, and views on the mission to protect and promote […]
