My Year Away: The Red Life

Speaker: Sophia Morrissette
Sunday, August 12, 2018

Since graduating from the FUS Youth program last year, Sophia Morrissette has been immersed in a freshman year of college, majoring in Peace Studies and Psychology, in a relatively conservative Orange County, CA. She spent her summer working on a documentary research grant project about why Asian-American women tend not to be visible in Hollywood. Next week she heads to Prague for her fall semester, a country run by a xenophobic alt-right conservative. During spring semester she’ll be interning at a non-profit while studying in D.C. In this talk, she’ll discuss what she’s learning, away from the progressive bubble of Minneapolis.
