Meet Our NSR Student Editors — Pamela Hartley, Senior Editor. The North Star Reports: Global Citizenship and Digital Literacy, at NorthStarReports.org and facebook.com/NorthStarReports
My name is Pamela Hartley and I am a 2014 CSS graduate. I graduated with a double major in International Relations and Global, Cultural Language Studies and a double minor in Economics and Political Science. I have been working with the Middle Ground Journal since 2010 and I will now take on a new challenge as a Senior Editor for NSR.
I’m from Lima, Peru and I am very interested in public policy, social and economic justice, micro-finance, politics and international development. Since graduating, I have worked in US Senator’s Al Franken’s reelection campaign as a field organizer, managed a St. Paul City Council race, worked in the development team at Wellstone Action and most recently joined an international NGO called MEDLIFE as their Expansion Associate.
I feel very passionate about working with different communities, people and engaging in dialogue. I constantly work to create a platform and space for collaboration and cooperation between individuals, entities, organizations and government. In the long run I aim to work for an international organization to promote cooperation and create mutually beneficial solutions for everyone involved.

The North Star Reports: Global Citizenship and Digital Literacy (http://NorthStarReports.org) is a student edited and student authored open access publication centered around the themes of global and historical connections. Our abiding philosophy is that those of us who are fortunate enough to receive an education and to travel our planet are ethically bound to share our knowledge with those who cannot afford to do so. Therefore, creating virtual and actual communities of learning between college and K-12 classes are integral to our mission. In five semesters we have published 200 articles covering all habitable continents and a variety of topics ranging from history and politics, food and popular culture, to global inequities to complex identities. These articles are read by K-12 and college students. Our student editors and writers come from all parts of the campus, from Nursing to Biology, Physical Therapy to Business, and remarkably, many of our student editors and writers have long graduated from college. We also have writers and editors from other colleges and universities. In addition to our main site, we also curate a Facebook page dedicated to annotated news articles selected by our student editors (http://www.facebook.com/NorthStarReports). This is done by an all volunteer staff. We have a frugal cash budget, and we donate much of our time and talent to this project. We are sponsored by St. Scholastica’s Department of History and Politics and by the scholarly Middle Ground Journal: World History and Global Studies (http://theMiddleGroundJournal.org).
