Yannick Sebastian Alphonso-Gibbs is a senior at Brown University concentrating in Public Policy. He was born and raised in the Bay Area, California. He is passionate about voting rights ensuring that every American can fully participate in the political process. This past summer he worked in Massachusetts, a state that just recently granted residents the option to vote early, on this very issue. Throughout this experience, he researched and reported the results of the Early Voting program, and he learned a great deal about the Massachusetts legislature which inspired his interest in state and local government. With a passion for technology and entrepreneurship, he is excited to apply his skills to the work he does in Washington, D.C. Yannick enjoys running, playing his violin and eating good food.
