Early life and education
Owens was raised in Stamford, Connecticut by her grandparents after her parents divorced. She is a graduate of Stamford High School.
In 2007, while a senior in high school, Owens, who is African-American, received threatening racist phone calls that were traced to a car in which the 14-year-old son of then-mayor Dannel Malloy was present. Owens’ family sued the Stamford Board of Education in federal court alleging that the city did not protect her rights, resulting in a $37,500 settlement.
Owens was pursuing an undergraduate degree in journalism at the University of Rhode Island but left school after her junior year. Afterwards, she worked for Vogue magazine. In 2012, she took a job as an administrative assistant for a private equity firm.
Owens made international headlines in March 2019 when she was named in the manifesto of the gunman who committed the Christchurch mosque shootings as the person who “influenced [him] above all”.
According to The Atlantic, the gunman’s rhetoric may have been designed to troll: “Though the shooter could be a genuine fan of Owens, who has been known to espouse right-leaning views on immigration and gun control, this reference might be meant to incite Owens’s critics to blame her.”
Owens rejected any connection to the shooter, telling Business Insider:
What happened last night in Christchurch, New Zealand is a tragedy and I echo the sentiment of all Americans, in wishing love and healing for all those impacted. That said, any insinuation that black conservatism in the United States has somehow inspired radical Islamophobic white supremacy terror overseas is pointedly absurd.
People on both sides of the political aisle—especially the victims—deserve a more honest conversation.
