Jillian Salmon is a senior studying public health.

She lives in northern NY and enjoys spending time hiking in the nearby Adirondacks.

Jillian recently completed a semester abroad in Copenhagen, where she studied issues such as international responses to the refugee crisis and Northern European health care systems.

Jillian is intrigued by this election’s conflicts between anti-establishment and establishment candidates, traditional vs. progressive values, and personality vs. policy focused campaigns, conflicts she feels signal a national identity crossroads.
