Faith is definitely a central part of Grace Young’s life. She volunteers at her church, and when asked who she would follow from history if they were on social media today, she replied, “Jesus Christ. Given his expert knowledge, excellent public speaking skills, connection with others, and compassion for people, Jesus would be an influencer like no other.”
One of our Think the Vote debate winners, Grace is currently a college junior at Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, Tennessee. Before that, she received a B.A. in political science at Motlow State Community College where she was the Executive Vice President of the Student Government Association (McMinnville Campus), a Student Ambassador, Secretary of the Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society (McMinnville Campus), a member of the Honors Program, and 2019 Homecoming Queen.
As a current voter, the three most important issues for Grace are abortion, First Amendment issues, and education. As far as plans for the future, Grace hopes to pursue a career in the legal field and become an author and someday publish an inspirational book.
