My name is Annah Heckman and I am a Event Planning Intern for SPARC! At Bard I am a Junior and Human Rights major with a concentration in Gender and Sexuality Studies. Outside of the classroom, I also intern with the Hannah Arendt Center and am a member of the Bard Intersectional Feminist Collective. When I am not working you’ll find me dancing like no one is watching, reading and watching endless Rom Coms. I am so excited to be a part of the SPARC team.
