Fiona Schieve is the circulation and administration assistant at Sojourners. She is from Winchester, Va., and has the apple obsession to show for it. During her gap year she worked as a campaign volunteer to help flip a district that had been red since 1981 blue during the “blue wave” of 2018.
She recently graduated from the College of Wooster with a joint bachelor’s degree in political science and religious studies. Her senior independent study project, “GOP Jesus and Trump: An Exploration of the Usage of Evangelical Christianity by Donald Trump,” explored how the former president was able to gain the support of evangelical “value voters” on the Right during the 2016 electoral cycle. This project received both a Paul DeWitt Twinem Bible award and an award for most timely research.
In her free time, Fiona enjoys baking, thrifting, going to concerts, and scrolling through TikTok.
