A lifelong resident of the St. Louis area, Raymond Moylan was raised in the rural community of Breese, Illinois. Currently a rising junior at Saint Louis University majoring in English and Sociology, Raymond has become increasingly invested in the study of race, the urban environment, structural oppression, and social inequality. He serves the Saint Louis University community as a resident advisor and a writing consultant. In addition, he works on a qualitative research team in the sociology department that investigates the evolving role of pharmacists in the opioid epidemic. Over the remainder of his undergraduate degree, Raymond hopes to develop his skills as a social researcher to create his own thesis examining race relations localized in the St. Louis community. After completing his degree, Raymond plans to continue his education into a graduate program that will allow him to both intellectually engage with and positively enact change on issues of racial and social inequity.
