Robert Colgan

A New York City native, Robert Colgan is a student at Stuyvesant high school in Manhattan. He is interested in politics, history, and current events, and is pleased to find a venue for his commitment to human rights. He was introduced to HERvoices in the eighth grade when a presentation brought alive for him the stories of women and girls in Pakistan. He realized how important it was for people to hear the real voices of the women rather than being told about them. An accomplished pianist and a voracious reader, Robert lives with his parents in Greenwich Village.
