What do you want to do in the future?
“In the future, I hope to use Public Policy Research Scholars to strengthen my new foundations in public policy and gain a formal education on this subject. By receiving a certificate in this topic and combining it with my finance major from Wharton, I hope to enact political change in the financial world. People often assume public policy refers only to social issues when it truly covers everything from cybersecurity to taxes to budgeting to civilian rights. As someone extremely focused on finance and business, I hope to use this to my advantage and take the education I gain from my Treasury internship, business education, and Public Policy Research Scholars Program to learn how I can use my knowledge and passions to enact fiscal change.”
What inspired you to apply to be a Public Policy Research Scholar?
“The Public Policy Research Scholars program is something I recently came across in my Public Policy Initiative Student Group meeting. My team leader said it was a wonderful opportunity for anyone interested in public policy to continue that trek and learn more about the subject in a formal setting. After researching the program in depth, I realized this was the perfect way for me gain exposure to government policy while maintaining a personalized line of study.”
