Bridget Grant

A native of the Pacific Northwest, Bridget grew up camping, hiking and playing soccer in Washington state. She pursued a liberal arts education from Linfield College in Oregon where she played four years of Division III soccer. Bridget graduated with a degree in Political Science and International Relations, concentrating on person-centric development and localized efforts in refugee assistance. Her passion for sustainable refugee assistance stems from a collaborative research project she worked on in Southeast Asia; her team examined the political limitations that continually complicate the efforts of international, domestic, and non-state actors to effectively assist refugees, migrants, and vulnerable populations. Bridget is working with i-ACT because she too believes humanity should come before politics.
