As a Climate Intern with PSR, Hope is eager to be a part of the team for the Summer of 2022. She will be working in areas that include federal policy and environmental justice, among other things. She hopes that this opportunity will bring her an experience that will help develop a variety of skills and pinpoint what direction she wants to go after she graduates in December of this year.
Hope is pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science at Central Michigan University. She is also minoring in History and is a First-Generation Student. At CMU, Hope is President of Spectrum (the oldest and largest LGBTQ+ organization on campus) and Conference Communications Director of ChipMUN (an organization that holds Model UN conferences for high school students). Hope also currently has two fellowships with Made By Us’ Civic Season and Campus Vote Project. Hope’s focus is working with historically marginalized groups as well as social issues including LGBTQ+ rights, racial injustice, and environmental injustice.
Hope was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. She moved to Michigan at the start of her college career at Central Michigan University. She is now looking at other states in search of universities to obtain a Master’s Degree in Public Administration.
Hope’s life goals include building stronger relationships between constituencies and elected officials, making an impact on the environment around her, and increasing her knowledge and spreading awareness of different issues that are of interest to her.
