Cassie Zimmer ’15 was chosen as a fellow for the largest qualitative study ever undertaken about life in the United States. Cassie is one of 75 fellows, selected from over 1,500 applicants, for the American Voices Project. It is an initiative of Stanford and Princeton universities with the goal of interviewing 5,000 people in all 50 states and Puerto Rico about life in the US. The interviews will take place in about 200 different US communities. The goal is to take the information gathered and use it to inform local, state, and federal policy to improve the country. Some of the topics discussed are healthcare, education, politics, and social media. The study lasts one year and will take Cassie throughout the Southwestern United States, California, and Alaska, moving every 6 weeks.
