Politics, Ethics, Disability Culture, Accessibility, Disability Rights, Feminism, LGBQT, Disability, Relationships, Sexuality My name is Greta Mauch. I’m a writer and communications strategist focusing on community building and equal opportunities. I’m a soon-to-be student at University of Westminster where I will be getting my MA in Media, Campaigning, & Social Change. I am also a recent graduate of American University, where I received my BA in Public Relations and Strategic Communications with a concentration in Political Communication and a minor in Sociology. I colloquially refer to this as Strategic Communication of Sociology. With this background, I specialize in opinion writing and social media content writing. In the past, I have been an Opinion Columnist for The Eagle, American University's official newspaper. Now, I hope to accessibly provide accurate information and evidence-based opinions on Disability integration, gender equity, LGBTQ+ rights, environmentalism, and more. Beyond writing, I am the Founding Communications Strategist and Web Designer for ICantAffordABaby.org, a resource directory website listing every financial and practical aid resource in the US for fertility, pregnancy, and parenthood.
