Allison Susor stands at a podium for her research presentation.

WGSS major Allison Susor delivered an oral presentation of her undergraduate thesis research at the Denman Undergraduate Research Forum on April 3rd. Her research, titled "Role Model Effect and Girls of Color: Building the Next Generation of Leaders," draws upon data from the "Girls of Color as Agents of Social Change" research project directed by Drs. Wendy Smooth and Elaine Richardson, which seeks to identify how girls of color respond to role models in politics with whom they share demographic identity markers.

Allison is in her fourth year at The Ohio State University, majoring in WGSS and minoring in History and Pop Culture Studies. She is the program facilitator of 1girl and an executive board member in the service fraternity of Alpha Phi Omega. She is the 2017 recipient of the Mildred Munday scholarship, as well as a member of Triota and a part of the WGSS Undergraduate Studies Committee.

Congratulations to Allison on all of her hard work!
