Welcome to my site.

This is a virtual look into who I am professionally,  academically and personally.  I am Valencia Richardson, and I am a J.D. Candidate at Georgetown University Law Center, and a Mass Communication and Spanish graduate at Louisiana State University. Currently, I am a voter access and civic engagement activist, working with the Andrew Goodman Foundation to increase democratic participation on college campuses across the country. I was a Fulbright grantee to Mexico, certified Distinguished Communicator and a graduate of the Honors College for which I am completed on an undergraduate thesis.

About me

I am a full-fledged Southern girl, a fact that I am only recently beginning to accept IMG_5273completely. I read as many books as my schedule allows. I am a compulsive organizer with a special place in my heart for a good color scheme. I want to spend my life helping people and I am always looking for more things to know (another reason for my decision to become bilingual). Depending on whom you ask, I could either be described as a know-it-all or a knowledge junkie. I express my thoughts and opinions on my blog  (which do not represent the views of the organizations that I am affiliated with). I wish to live a life of meaning.

Se habla español, con cuidado.
