I am a feminist because…Nothing is more important than respecting yourself and your history, and making sure others do as well.

The best thing about interning at the FMF is…the stories, the people, and the intern office speakers.

Future interns should make sure they…enjoy coffee, CNN, and public transportation.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be, and why? As lazy as I try not to be, teleporting would give me so much more naptime

I am a feminist because…Instead of Rock-A-Bye Baby, Helen Reddy’s “I am Woman” was the only effective lullaby for baby Cathy.

The best thing about interning at the FMF is……working for positive change with some of the bossest ladies around.

Future interns should make sure they…Have their phone voices at the ready.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be, and why? Omni-linguism because it would be a great first step on the path to being able to better communicate, understand, and relate to other cultures.
