Where are you from?
Newport, Rhode Island
How do you like to spend your time?
Reading and talking to people who come into the coffee shop I work at really early in the morning
Whats your story?
I'm a student in gender studies and English education. I struggle with mental illness and I love my three sisters. I have no idea what my career will be and I love school.
What is Feminism?
Feminism tells me that all the things I hate(d) about myself are valuable. It is also helping me smash the remnants of the cisheteropatriarchy ingrained in me and fight the system I am still living in.
What does "Feminist as Fuck" mean?
FAF means being unapologetically feminist in every setting. It means defending and valuing my allies no matter the context. My feminism is transnational, intersectional, and takes no shit.
What Feminist topics are most important to you?
I think education is inherently feminist but that our system is not. I am passionate about the demilitarization of public schools. Schools are not always safe spaces for students, particularly students of color and LGBTQ+ students, because they are over-medicated, over-disciplined, and underserved. I hope to be an educator someday that has stake only in authentic connection with students, fellow educators, and legislators (in that order).
