Gianna serves as a program officer for campus advancement for Young America’s Foundation.
She grew up in a southwest suburb of Chicago and graduated from Purdue University in 2017. Following college, she played soccer overseas in Australia and Iceland. While she has only recently become involved in the Conservative Movement, she is more excited than ever to spread its values and principles to students across the country.
Gianna became increasingly concerned about the direction the country was headed in early 2020, at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Her eyes were opened dramatically as she realized so much she was taught to believe about the world was not true. Gianna found her way to Young America’s Foundation through Ben Shapiro’s YouTube videos. She then traveled to see a YAF lecture featuring Matt Walsh at the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater, which prompted her decision to join the YAF team and help spread conservatism to students nationwide.
