Mission Statement: To inform Southwest Florida residents about the perspective of one political science/prelaw student at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU), through the publication of editorial commentary. I was born in Hamden, Connecticut and resided there until I moved to Naples with my parents in 1998. I graduated with honors from Barron Collier High School in May of 2009. I am currently a senior at FGCU, pursuing my B.A. in Political Science. This upcoming fall, I will be pursuing my Juris Doctorate, as a member of the class of 2016, at Indiana University-Bloomington Maurer School of Law. Currently, I write for FGCU's award-winning student newspaper, 'The Eagle News' as a Senior Staff Opinion/Editorial Writer. I am elated to provide insight into the life of a college student at our nearest state university. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
