What inspired you to apply to be a Public Policy Research Scholar
“One of the major reasons I applied to Penn was the multidisciplinary potential of the Penn curriculum. Ever since I was young, I’ve had a passion for government and politics, but all the majors in government, international relations, or political science tended to oversimplify the economic aspect of policymaking. PPRS combines the areas of policymaking and quantitative analysis in a way that will allow me to better understand the intersection of economics and governmental affairs.”
What do you want to do in the future?
“I hope to work either in the military or the public sector. For both of these paths, the experience I’ll gain from PPRS is essential. PPRS will assist me in establishing a strong basis in the fundamentals of public policy, which I can then build on when I go to graduate school.”
