Natalie Peyton (she/her) is an undergraduate senior at the College of Charleston majoring in Political Science and minoring in Jewish Studies. She is set to graduate in May 2024. She holds an Associate in the Arts from Trident Technical College (2022), where her focus on secondary education and politics laid the foundation for her academic journey. Evolving interests led her to Genocide and Holocaust studies while at the College of Charleston, with specific focuses on gender-based violence, female resisters, and the impact of stereotypes as a means to survival.


Natalie is also the co-host of "H.E.A.R. their Stories," a student-led podcast aiming to make Holocaust education accessible and engaging. Post-grad, Natalie plans to take a gap semester to add to her love of travel before pursuing her Ph.D. in History. 


Natalie is the Pink Triangle Legacies Project's first Public History Intern offered in partnership with the Zucker/Goldberg Center for Holocaust Studies at the College of Charleston.  During her internship (January - May 2024), Natalie is responsible for researching and producing one profile resource kit for our LGBTQ+ Stories from Nazi Germany initiative, managing the Project's social media platforms, and creating a relationship management database. 

Reflecting on her internship, Natalie said, "Intrigued by my pursuit of Genocide studies, I was captivated by the Project's focus on non-Jewish victim experiences, the dynamics of hate, and strategies for protecting marginalized groups. As the U.S. grapples with contemporary issues like LGBTQ+ discrimination, I see the Project as an opportunity to gain insights into preserving human dignity, stopping the spread of hate, and helping to tell the stories of those in the past, as well as those in the present.
