Kelly was a political science major at Union College in Schenectady, NY. As a native of California, Kelly enjoys spending her time adjusting to new and exciting perspectives and opening her eyes to the possibilities that advocacy and politics could bring to different communities. As co-chair of Union College Amnesty International and a contributing writer and communication director of the Union College Banner, a political newsletter, Kelly remained active both on campus and in her communities at home in California, and in her second home in New York. Kelly hopes to continue her advocacy on women’s and LGBT rights as well as for human rights on a local and international scale as she looks to the political nest of Washington, D.C. for more opportunities to change the nature of our conversations about equality and the rights of others.
