LOLA of the Month, Patrice Lee
This month's LOLA of the Month is Patrice Lee, a senior fellow at the Independent Women’s Forum, is the director of outreach at Generation Opportunity where she works to promote economic opportunity for Millennials.
Patrice caught our eye when she attended one of our One Day Media Training events earlier this year. Since attending our training event, she has been a guest on One America News Network, the Christian Broadcasting Network, and most recently she was on PBS' program, To The Contrary (Patrice has a strong closing at 24:20!), and on PJ TV.
Prior to joining GenOpp, Patrice worked at The Philanthropy Roundtable and the Fund for American Studies in policy and media roles. She also held consulting roles as a speech writer for a United Nations spokesman and a manager for a student travel program to South Africa.
Born in the Caribbean, Patrice immigrated with her family to Boston where she grew up and completed her education. She earned her bachelor’s degree in economics and political science from Tufts University and a master’s degree in international relations from Boston College. Patrice’s unique background fuels her passion to defend freedom and faith in America.
