Hannah Payne is a rising sophomore in the Honor’s college at the University of Georgia studying finance and legal studies.

Hannah is passionate about promoting conservative ideas and understanding public policy’s effects on the markets and business as a whole. As a result, she spent much of her first year on campus participating in conservative activism events and working on state elections. Additionally, Hannah served as a student government senator, member of the Kennedy finance society, and a member of the Dean William Tate Honor Society.

Hannah first became involved with Young America’s Foundation five years ago when she attended the National High School Leadership Conference. She then started a Young Americans for Freedom chapter at her high school in her home town of Rome, Georgia. She proceeded to host speakers, including, Bay Buchananand Rick Santorum, on her campus. She currently serves as vice chairwoman of the University of Georgia’s YAF Chapter.

Hannah is excited to intern with Young America’s Foundation and grateful to William and Berniece Grewcock for making the opportunity possible.
