Keisuke Fujio is a senior CLEG major in the School of Public Affairs, hailing from Waltham, Massachusetts. He became interested in bridging divides and finding common ground while growing up as a half-Japanese American in both MA and NC – where, perhaps, culture and politics could not be more different. Keisuke previously served as an intern for NC Attorney General Josh Stein and currently serves as a Founding Board Member for the AU Student Alumni Association. In his free time, Keisuke enjoys poker, crossfit, and discovering new places to eat. He looks forward to bringing in-person discourse events back to campus this year and re-engaging with the AU community in a variety of PCD programs.
