Since I was young, I have found the dystopias of the English canon both terrifying and fascinating. Orwell, Bradbury, Kafka, and Vonnegut: each of their prophetic visions transform over time as if to demand that the reader constantly reexamine their society for the warning signs. Fifteen years after my first encounter with 1984 I continue to examine our society as a policy analyst and writer. For me, it is Huxley’s imagining of a future when the “truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance” that carries the most import. Advances in technology have inundated us with a deluge of information and engagement options. Drawing attention to the important causes of the hour is more difficult than ever before. Aptly, Huxley’s diagnosis of our society also supplied a cure: “Words can be like X-rays if you use them properly — they’ll go through anything. You read and you’re pierced.” This is where I come in: I am a master of words. I have honed the analytical abilities of a lawyer and the communication skills of a writer. I am an established policy analyst with experience in the fields of immigration, environmental justice,human rights, and civil liberties. I am an articulate and adept writer, with the ability to craft compelling arguments on tight deadlines. The culmination of these skills makes me a powerful advocate who can compose forceful and influential campaigns that change hearts and minds. I have spent my life learning to deconstruct words, to discerningly excise their meaning, and then to sculpt them into poignant messages that stand out and inspire change. If you want your organization’s truth to pierce through, send me an email at hughes.cara@gmail.com. Specialties: international human rights, refugee and immigration law and policy, LGBTI rights, environmental human rights, writing and editing

JD, Legal Researcher and Writer

United States - Last active: 10/01/2014 - Tests: 1

I have a wide range of experiences to draw from for many different kinds of projects, from drafting legal pleadings to social media campaigns and writing. Following graduation with my B.A. from UT Dallas, I spent four years as a teacher, from 2000-2004, prior to taking time off to start a family. And in addition to having a long-awaited new baby, I was gifted with an experience that changed my outlook on the meaning of my own life and future goals for my career. I became an activist as a result of personal experiences with bad health care and a lack of informed consent for dangerous prescriptions. Thus, my passion is in the area of mental health reform. My work has included lobbying, speaking with the media, working with victims and survivors, writing, researching, graphic design, social networking and public speaking. As a law student at SMU Dedman School of Law, I studied Products Liability, Medical Malpractice, FDA Law, Legislation, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, and Litigation. As a Student Attorney in the Criminal Defense Clinic, I represented approximately 80 clients under supervision from a licensed attorney and won my only trial. Since law school I have worked for lawyers on both civil and criminal matters, researching and drafting pleadings for everything from state and federal criminal defense to legal malpractice lawsuits, DTPA cases, breach of contract, tortious interference and real estate cases. My goals for the future include reforming prescription drug law, mental health reform, and working in constitutional law and criminal defense. I am especially interested in working for justice for the wrongfully convicted, including children who have been exploited by the legal system. I have also spent some time helping support moms who want to breastfeed to be able to do so as a volunteer for La Leche League, and educating others on various issues such as circumcision, natural childbirth, and holistic health. Specialties: Lobbying, Media, Social Networking, Writing, Research, Graphic Design, Advocacy Interests: Music, Cooking, Architecture, Photography, Gardening, Travel

Over the last 12 years, I have developed a varied skill set, which is applicable to a wide variety of competencies that I have had the pleasure of performing in both formal and informal settings. From leadership in small business to creative entrepreneurial endeavors to start-up consultation and more, I often find myself exploring new horizons, which keeps my brain active and engaged. My core competency is in creative writing, speaking and singing. I also have experience in the following areas: brainstorming, designing, testing, implementation and troubleshooting. I could also bore you with a long list of other skills that might seemingly have nothing to do with each other; however, I feel it would be more effective to say that these skills have contributed to my ability to flex into whatever prospect I am currently exploring. I strive to serve others instead of serving myself. Joshua Pattillo – Your happiness is my success!™
