"I came to Pace because it offered me the opportunity to combine a big, bustling city with a more intimate classroom experience. "
– Jordan Little, Class of 2017

I came to Pace because it offered me the opportunity to combine a big, bustling city with a more intimate classroom experience.  While here, my interest in activism and social justice translated well into dual majors in English and Women’s and Gender Studies, and minors in Queer Studies and Peace and Justice Studies. Many of my professors work in their respective fields, and are both very engaged in the subjects they teach and supportive of their students, including me.  I have interned at Pro Mujer, one of Latin America’s leading women’s development organizations, working in their major gifts department, and at The Borgen Project, a campaign that works with U.S. leaders to improve their response to the global poverty crisis, as a writer for their website. Currently, I am interning at Pace's LGBT Center and am also the editor of Aphros, Pace's literary magazine. After graduation, I would like to join the AmeriCorps or PeaceCorps, or continue in nonprofit work, with an eye towards creating social change for women and the queer community.
