Nathaniel Cunneen is a Communications Associate at the American Federation for Children. He was previously a member of the 2020 Future Leaders Fellowship Cohort.

Nathan grew up as a school choice beneficiary in Florida, spending eleven total years as a recipient of the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship program. He spent two interim years in public school at the beginning of high school, which quickly taught him the value of school choice. Having the opportunity to attend a private school, twice, changed Nathans’s life, and he is determined to provide the same opportunity to other students. Nathan received his bachelor’s degree in Economics and Global Studies from Loyola University Maryland, becoming the first in his family to graduate college.

With AFC, Nathan works on a wide range of tasks, including managing the Voices for Choice database, drafting and editing various written material, assisting in communications campaigns, and sharing his story in person via public forums. Nathan’s writing has been published in the Washington Examiner, Project Forever Free, and the Education Post.
