Connor is an intended Health and Societies major in the College of Arts and Sciences. She is particularly interested in anti-violence work as it relates to women— on Penn’s campus, in Philadelphia, and around the world. During her time in high school she partnered with Jhpiego, a Johns Hopkins-affliated nonprofit that focuses on preventable maternal and child deaths, to lead initiative to raise awareness around school absences in African adolescents due to lack of access to menstrual hygiene products. She has facilitated OneLove Foundation’s Escalation workshop, which educates audiences about relationship violence in high school and college,  and is now head of education in Penn V-Day, an anti-violence and activist group on campus. Most recently, she has become involved in the Consent Collab, a new group on campus aiming to address issues around consent and education around issues of consent at Penn.
