Congratulations to McDowell senior Victoria Avanesov for being selected for publication in the August 2021 Journal of Student Research. The Journal of Student Research is an Academic, Multidisciplinary, and Faculty-reviewed Student Journal, devoted to the rapid dissemination of current research. The Journal, “seeks papers that are novel, integrative, and written in a way that is accessible to a wide audience which includes an array of disciplines.” Victoria is an AP Capstone student with McDowell’s Distinctive Scholars Program. As a requirement for the Capstone program, she completed both AP Seminar and AP Research. Victoria’s paper titled “Moral Rights Laws and Income Disparity Between Artists in High and Low GDP States” explores the impact that moral rights laws have on artists’ welfare in states of varying outputs of GDP.
“I ultimately picked my topic based on what career path I was looking into. I never truly recognized the depth and impact of the implications that came from Moral Rights laws and income disparity in all 50 states. Overall, I would like to thank my peers, my teacher Mr. Hodgson, and all my other mentors along the way,” -Victoria Avanesov.
Victoria is very involved in and outside the school setting as well. She is in a number of clubs such as robotics, DECA, McDowell Manufacturing, art club, and is on the McDowell Leadership board.
