Summary

Sophomore: Political Science Major at Virginia Tech
Curator: Virginia Elections Hub

I am currently a student at Virginia Tech studying political science with a concentration in National Security and Foreign Affairs. I am intrigued by politics multi-dimensions and want to enhance my knowledge of local, state, and federal government.  I am also seeking to challenge myself to network and apply my education in the professional world.

Receiving the opportunity to work for Elections onAir serves as the perfect vehicle to aid my passionate pursuit of Virginia politics. I am thrilled at to be able help the non-profit organization achieve their goals of engaging the Commonwealth of Virginia's constituency to learn, discuss and vote.
