My name is Riley Valentine.

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Political Science at Louisiana State University.

I have hitch hiked across the United States, provided free medical aid for protestors, coordinated and worked at a free medical facility after Hurricane Sandy in New York City, taught introductory courses in Political Science at Louisiana State University, organized a two-week long free conference through Mastodon, and actively publish academic and non-academic work.

I combine the intersections of my identities and experiences to deepen my pedagogical approach, loving what I do with others.
