Sophomore: Political Science Major and Communications Minor at Virginia Tech
Curator: Virginia Elections Hub

Politics has always been a passion of mine which has been enhanced with my early major related classes. In today’s digital society there are numerous outlets to learn about the election process. However, many of these outlets are driven by profit or political gain.

Elections onAir provides a valuable non-biased forum for Virginia citizens and I look forward in assisting the organization with my proficiency in social media, interpersonal communication skills and passion for politics.

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.
