Margaret Alvine is an 18-year-old homeschooled high school Senior. She has been homeschooled all her life, along with her six younger siblings. She currently lives in the Mojave Desert in Southern California.
Her interest in the Constitution grew through her sophomore AP US Government class, which she really enjoyed. She also enjoys reading the speeches of the late Antonin Scalia, former Supreme Court judge, and looks up to him as an example of a life lived in faith and reason. She is excited for this opportunity to help inform others about our wonderful Constitution.
She competes in multiple speech categories in National Christian Forensics and Communication Association (NCFCA), including a persuasive speech on the necessity of historical knowledge to a free people. In addition to her schoolwork and extracurriculars, Margaret teaches Religious Education at her parish, and this year has shifted online due to Covid.
In Margaret’s spare time, she enjoys crafting and other forms of designing, playing flute and recorder, coming up with skits with her sister, reading, and engaging others in conversation.
