Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I'm a Nonprofit Management student at North Park University in Chicago and am hoping to work for a human rights NGO when I graduate. My international work and volunteer experiences have played definitive roles in placing me upon this path. I'm looking forward to participating in the Global Ethics Network in order to develop useful skills that will allow me to be an effective leader in human rights advocacy and to connect with other individuals who also have high hopes and big plans for the future.

And, with an anti-science administration in the White House today, what are the contentious issues?
