I arrived in this state at the age of four as a transplant from Electric City, Washington to Sheboygan, Wisconsin. I currently reside in Green Bay with my family nearby. My time in Northeastern Wisconsin has familiarized me with the region’s uniquely shifting culture and the problems therein.
Currently, I am student at the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay where I study English literature, philosophy, and world culture. Through the course of my studies and personal experiences, I began to recognize a historical pattern of deep-seated biases influencing people, art, and politics. History proves that unless discriminatory practices and the theoretical frameworks which justify them are put to bed, they re-arise in new and more dangerous forms. Through my work with the Intellegere Project, I aim to expose the local manifestations of centuries-old traditions of racism, sexism, ageism, ableism, transphobia, and sexual orientation discrimination.
