Elise Otmani is a junior in the Dual BA Program between Sciences Po Paris and Columbia University. She is majoring in Economics and Philosophy though she is also interested in art and political theory. Of Algerian descent, she has already been involved with NGOs aimed at facilitating migrants’ integration into French society. She now wishes to direct her efforts defending the queer community by using art’s appeasing qualities. She believes in Walter Benjamin’s idea that politicizing art can lead us to a utopia. In her free time, she is usually on the lookout for new artists to discover on Spotify! She hopes to pursue a career combining art and human rights.
