    An internship with Democracy onAir is the next step in continuing my journey toward my goals of becoming a political journalist.

    My studies thus far within the School of Communication at George Mason University as well as my outside engagement in competitive forensics have vastly strengthened my journalism, public speaking, and PR proficiencies. While my networking skills will contribute to connecting efficiently with different sectors of the agency as well as other interns selected. The partnership between the internship and U.S politics is a connection that fully interest me.

    State Government Coordinator: Virginia onAir

    I was recently selected into George Mason University’s Global Politics fellowship program for the Spring 2019 semester. This fellowship is a very selective program where students take courses specific to global governance and development as well as international law and then pair their coursework with an internship related to the field of study in order to directly apply what is being taught in the classroom and gain valuable work experience.

    I greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with Democracy onAir. Networking is an important tool to move forward in a career and I hope I will gain some valuable relationships and experience from the internship itself.

    OnAir Chapter Coordinator and Curator: Virginia Elections Hub

    As far back as I can remember I have always been interested in government at all levels, from the local level to the federal level. So much so that I have considered a career in field of government since childhood. In addition to this, over the past couple of years I have become increasingly interested in the role of elections and electoral policy, and how it shapes the government of the United States. As such, I believe that I have the necessary background knowledge and drive to actively participate in this internship, and both contribute to and get as much out of it as possible.
