How did you become involved with Planned Parenthood?

I became involved through my University. Currently, I attend Minnesota State University, Mankato and I am a part of the Gender and Women’s Studies program. My advisor had shared this internship opportunity with me and it seemed like a perfect fit, as this is my first time working with Planned Parenthood!

Why is it important for you to advocate for sexual and reproductive health care?

I have had times in my life where I have run into roadblocks of misinformation. Sex education was something that was not incredibly available in my area, so I did not have correct information, nor did others. Reproductive health care is important for everyone, as it impacts everyone. Supporting and helping others to get the help they need is why I advocate for sexual and reproductive health care. 

What does it mean to you to be an activist/advocate in your community?

Being an activist in my community means that there are people that are getting more information, and the help they need. As well as everyone, including myself continue to learn and grow into who they are for themselves. 

What are you excited to learn this summer as a Path to Power Intern? 

I am excited to learn how to organize events, communication skills, and strategies to advocate for others. 

What role do you think young people have in fighting for reproductive freedom and health equity?

I believe that young  people have the biggest influence in the fight for reproductive freedom and health equity. The use of social media is prevalent in young people, creating more ways for young people to reach out to others and spread information. 

What advice do you have for someone who wants to get involved in advocating for sexual and reproductive health care?

My advice would be to put yourself out there. Any place or person you talk to may have different opinions on what you should support, so choose to support yourself. The first step is to continue to research and build community with others.
