Hanna Frank was Education Post’s Social Media Manager and before that she worked with Organizing For Action, a non-profit organization that advocates for President Barack Obama’s political agenda. She wrote and edited content for the organization’s various social media platforms, including the official Barack Obama Facebook and Twitter accounts, as well as BarackObama.com.

Hanna attended Illinois public schools, but spent most of her secondary education as a homeschooled student. Her experience and transition between the two gave her the passion to take action on bringing higher standards to public schools nationwide and giving every child a chance to succeed. She holds a bachelor’s from Lewis University in mass communications and earned the university’s 2013-2014 Senior Departmental Award for Multimedia Journalism.
