Andrea attended the University of Minnesota. She has worked on a variety of social justice issues, ranging from worked to get more gender neutral bathrooms on campus to voted rights. Her passion for social justice was really sparked when she spent fall semester of her junior year studying off campus in the Twin Cities through HECUA’s Inequality and America program. Andrea has been passionate about a wide variety of issues, and this was why she has been very excited to learn more about herself as to where her skills and passions align in the social justice field.

Andrea believes the work and voices of students is an integral part of the movement for social justice and seeks to further increase student representation in the movement. She envisions a community where all ages are represented at the table, engaged in lively conversation about visions for communities, countries, and world. Her Blueprint addresses this goal by actively engaging students in her campus community with her social justice work off campus. Through a series of presentations on campus, coupled with a larger campus community event, Andrea motivates students to plug into issues they care about.
