Colin Curtis was born and raised in Kansas City, Kansas. He graduated from Sumner Academy of Arts and Science and now attends Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas.
Colin is extremely active in politics. He names it as his number one priority, noting that even Aristotle said, “Man is by nature a political animal.” He currently serves as the state president for Kansas Young Democrats, the co-vice president of the College Democrats of Kansas, the Kansas State Chapter Rep, and as the Judicial Council Alternate Rep for Young Democrats of America.
Ever since Colin was a small child, he has been involved in or working on political campaigns. Politics is very important to him because he believes that it's only through being involved can we help to shape the world around us. He is a enthusiastic organizer and always encourages others to join him in his efforts. (By the way, that's Curtis in the center of the photograph.)
One of his favorite quotes is from Ghandi, "Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment."
With his passion for learning, enthusiasm for organizing, love of people, and dedication to encouraging others to get involved, we know that Curtis is going to make a big difference in our world. We're just so thrilled that this dedicated activist has joined our Everyday Citizen community and we'll be able to watch him do it! Colin welcomes you to view his blog here.
