Hello and welcome! My name is Emily Schroeder and I am a senior currently finishing up my undergraduate degree at Purdue University. Upon graduation in May 2012 I will have earned a Bachelor of Art with a major in Political Science and minors in History and Italian. I am very interested in connecting with potential employers and colleagues!

My strengths lie in my ability to communicate effectively and willingness to work hard. The knowledge I have gained during my undergraduate work at Purdue University and my previous internship experience will allow me to become a successful member of any team. I am very passionate about government and law. This dedication have led me to pursue a law degree. My legal aspirations and future political ambitions drive me to succeed!
