Originally from Swampscott, MA, I am graduate of Saint Anselm College in Manchester, NH, with a degree in Politics, and a double minor in Spanish and Catholic Studies. Saint Anselm is the home of the New Hampshire Presidential debates every four years. I am currently a graduate student at the University of Notre Dame, working towards an M.A. in Theology through the Echo Program. My interests are American Government (usually national elections) and International Relations. My undergraduate thesis studied the relationship of the Roman Catholic Church to the governments of El Salvador, Argentina, and Spain.
