Hanlyn Tyler — University of North Texas
Group: MediaWise Voter Project
I am a nonbinary person from a small town in Texas who loves all things civic engagement! I have been registering fellow students at my college to vote through different organizations since the first semester of my freshman year and plan on continuing the fight for a more engaged and informed electorate well beyond my college years. In addition to being a Campus Correspondent, I am also currently a GLAAD Campus Ambassador and have previously worked at the first institutional transgender advocacy group in the country — the Trans Buddy Program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, been a Social Media Ambassador for the Texas Tribune Festival and interned in U.S. Congress.
“I am so excited about this opportunity to work for the Poynter Media Institute and directly further the cause of media literacy!”
