What do you hope to gain from the PPRS experience?
“PPRS allows me to incorporate the business concepts I learn in my Wharton courses with tangible, quantitative ideas on domestic public policy. My study of Spanish will tie in with a focus on tangible policy; by understanding Hispanic and Latino language and culture, I will be better equipped to study domestic politics and policy. My knowledge of Spanish is especially important as more and more people in the nation as a whole identify as Latino or Latina. PPRS will further my foundation in pragmatic policy and give me tools needed to combine theoretical ideas with actual policy proposals.”
What do you want to do in the future?
“While I do not know my exact future, that does not preclude me from having general goals for the future. I hope to one day work in the public sector. Whether I attend law school, grad school in public policy, or head straight into the workforce, PPRS will give me an ability to understand policy from a quantitative perspective that complements my Wharton degree. I hope to use these skills to improve public policy and the daily lives of Americans.”
