Junior Emily Hinrichs had the opportunity to speak with Tulsi Gabbard and interview Priory alumna Colleen Hanabusa for her Independent Research project entitled “Breaking the Glass Ceiling: The Rise of Women in American Politics from 2007-2017.” Emily is creating a documentary that highlights various women politicians speaking about the role gender plays in politics. In addition to Gabbard and Hanabusa, Emily has also had the opportunity to interview other women politicians such as Senator Jill Tokuda, Senator Laura Thielen, Representative Nadine Nakamura, and Councilwoman Ann Kobayashi. Emily also received a shout out from Colleen Hanabusa on Colleeen Hanabusa’s Facebook as well!
