Summary

I am currently in my senior year, pursuing a degree in Political Science at Purdue University. I have an interest in public policy and administration and hope to use those channels to impact the human rights and social work fields.

I would like to draw your attention to my work experience, which I believe has given me great opportunities for leadership. Through these experiences I have improved my communication skills, both verbal and written. I also understand how to work in a group dynamic as well as on my own. These skills are applicable to all fields and may prove beneficial in any work setting.
