Allison Namias Grossman

Berkeley, California, United States

Passionate advocate, writer, student, and educator looking for a place in the world where I can do good, well. This fall I am beginning graduate study in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley.

I have served as a Peace Corps volunteer in the Republic of Guinea, where I worked in public health education. Previously, I worked with a variety of non-profit organizations, including the Center for Global Development, National Democratic Institute, Human Rights Watch, ACLU, and National Organization for Women.

I am interested in the way the stories we tell ourselves about the rest of the world influence the way we understand people and places far away from us and how those understandings orient our actions.

I am always seeking opportunities to grow my knowledge base, so please reach out if we share interests.
