Micah is a first-year student at Yale University interested primarily in American and comparative politics, with a focus in race and ethnic politics. Specifically, Micah hopes to explore the political attitudes and behaviors of White voters in the United States and Western Europe and is particularly interested in exploring the dynamics of White identity as it relates to gender, sexuality, and class. Micah is also interested broadly in policy formation and hopes to explore how recent protests around racial relations in the U.S. translate into policy outcomes. Prior to starting graduate school, Micah served as a non-profit consultant, a film publicist, and conducted research in the Sociology department at Georgetown University. Micah received her undergraduate degree in Political Science from Duke University.
