Cathryn Peirce was raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 2016, she graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Pennsylvania with double majors in European History and Cinema Studies and a minor in French. As a campus leader, Cathryn used her roles in student government and peer mentoring to advocate for sexual violence prevention, intersectional feminism, and social justice.

Currently, Cathryn is a Fulbright ETA (English Teaching Assistant) at Collège Moderne de Cocody in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire. It’s her hope that Fulbright will be the first of many career steps she takes that reflect her values, passion for advocacy, and positive determination to make a difference.

To really get a sense of who Cathryn is though, look no farther than the phrases she lives by:

Strangers are friends yet to be made.
Never leave home without courage, class, compassion, and confidence.
Let us then see what love will do. - Quaker saying
A positive attitude yields positive results.
