Ian is a history major with plans to pursue a PhD in political theory. He grew up all over the Mountain West, but only ever felt at home in big cities at sea level. Over his time at BYU, he has enjoyed pursuing creative writing projects, learning from other feminists, serving in leadership capacities in societies across from campus, from Phi Alpha Theta to the Honors Student Leadership Council. He is passionate about equity and access to higher education, and thinks region and social class are two of the most under-appreciated forms of diversity in the U.S. today. He would like to thank Dr. Rachel Cope, Audrey Saxton, and the editors of AWE for their advice and inspiration on this paper.
