About Jacob Daruvala

I am a 17 year old progressive from California. I first became interested in politics when President Obama ran for president in 2008. He was the first person I recognized as a modern day leader that I admired. Despite not being able to vote, I excitedly talked to people about him. This introduced me to the world of politics. I trained myself on the issues, I became more interested in history, and eventually decided that the world of politics would be my career. My interests in progressive writing are very broad. From LGBT rights, to universal healthcare, I am dedicated to using my voice to fight for what is right. Follow my articles here: https://twitter.com/JacobDaruvala
