I am thrilled to announce that FOUR Young Voices contributors and alumni were honored in The Washington Examiner’s 2018 “30 Under 30” list yesterday recognizing right-of-center leaders under 30-years-old.

Meet our honorees and learn how Young Voices has empowered their professional development:


Amelia Irvine is a senior at Georgetown University and Young Voices contributor. In the spring, Amelia won first place in Young Voices’ Campus Pundit Scholarship competition for an op-ed she published in her student newspaper, The Hoya, defending Second Amendment rights. Amelia is currently participating in Young Voices’ Tech Policy Fellowship this fall, making media hits defending American innovation.


Kat Murti is the senior digital outreach manager at the Cato Institute and a Young Voices alumna. I’ve personally known Kat since our college days at the University of California, Berkeley, where she and I would throw joint events between our two clubs — Students For Liberty and Students for Sensible   Drug Policy. During her tenure at Young Voices, Kat made appearances on Fox 5 DC and CRTV.


Brad Polumbo is a senior at the University of Massachusetts – Amherst and Young Voices contributor. Over the summer, Brad worked along Young Voices’ staff as an editorial intern in our Washington, DC office. Our editors were so impressed with his work at the time that he was promoted to Assistant Editor. Today, Brad helps the team edit and place Young Voices’ op-eds on a daily basis. Brad is also a participant in Young Voices’ Free Society Fellowship this fall, publishing media hits defending the free society from illiberal populism around the world.


Tyler Grant is a Young Voices contributor and lawyer in Washington, DC. As a member of our newest class, Tyler has quickly become one of our most prolific writers, scoring publications and interviews in prominent outlets including The National Interest and SiriusXM. We see bright things ahead for Tyler!
