What do you want to do in the future?
“Although I have not decided on my exact future career, I know I want to pursue a career in public service or public policy. I have thoroughly enjoyed my internships in a Congressional office, at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, and on a Senate campaign and could easily see myself pursuing a career on the Hill or on a campaign, perhaps after graduate or law school.”
What do you hope to gain from the PPRS experience?
“One of the things that interests me about PPRS is that it seeks to engage students in the political process, but places a heavy emphasis on policy analysis. I am excited about the ability to tailor a course of study to a particular policy interest of mine, as well as the opportunity to interact with policy-influencers from a variety of industries. Within my first semester in the program, I have had the opportunity to meet editors of top publications, directors of public policy at large firms, and staffers from the Hill. PPRS does a great job connecting students with a variety of resources that correspond to their interests, and I look forward to taking advantages of these opportunities throughout the rest of my time in the program.”
