First Year
Political Science
Dallas, TX

I plan to major in Political Science and minor in Women’s Studies and Gender Studies. Through these programs I am eager to be instilled with the knowledge necessary for me to one day work on The Hill as a future female leader, and enact policy and change that I truly believe will help citizens feel safe, appreciated, and well-acknowledged despite a tumultuous political climate. I hope that through both the Gannon Program and my classes at Loyola, I will be able to look deeper into the presence of women’s social issues not just within U.S. borders, but all around the world. As someone who has participated in theatre since quite a young age, I would like to combine my interest in performance art with my passion for human rights issues through film as a research path. I voraciously viewed documentaries for years to help me better understand the social justice issues that are prominent all over the world … As small as my personal impact may seem, film brings knowledge straight to those who hope to uncover it, and reaches all over the world. I want to be a part of a campus that is supportive, socially aware, diverse, and dedicated to tearing down the barriers that prevent humankind from moving forward as a society.
