Brewing Justice Series: Grad student talks on the importance of impact and Womens History Month.

Sidney Larsen is an active volunteer, ally and member of 734 Coffee family. She is currently studying at the American University in Washington DC, pursuing her masters in International Peace and Conflict Resolution. She likes to work with organizations that are promoting peace while moving the needle forward in creating positive change like 734 Coffee.  After her studies, Sidney plans to tackle many of the world’s most pressing issues including quality of life and income inequality. When Sidney isn’t busy thinking about how to improve the world, you can find her at trivia night, dancing and learning how to skateboard.

Having female role models that have and continue to impact our society is very important to Sidney. She expresses what it means to her:

“My top female role models would probably be my professors. Hearing about the work they have done and are continuing to do in the fields of peace, development, etc. while at the same time preparing the next generation to do the same is really inspiring and the direction that I hope my own career takes. Having access to such strong and brilliant women is such an asset and I am very thankful for it.”

This is why Sidney deems Women's History Month important to women all over the world. She understands the importance of what it means to be on the right side of history and the impact it creates.  She wants to continue to advocate for justice everywhere and aims to be in that pool of women brewing social justice around the world.
