We are back for our first Member Monday post of 2018! Meet Alissa Kiefer, a junior majoring in Psychology and Political Science from Canton, Ohio. She’s passionate about many issues, including women’s rights, wealth inequality, and education reform. Outside of College Dems, Alissa is a Women’s Affairs Senator in Student Senate and an active member of the Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law Fraternity. After she graduates a year early this spring, Alissa plans to take a gap year before graduate school. During this time she plans to go back to Canton and pursue a position that will help her give back to her city, while also working directly with underprivileged kids within her community beat the same odds she faced while growing up. Alissa specifically hopes to help minimize major adversities such as food insecurity, homelessness, violence in surrounding communities, etc. that limit the success of many young people.
