About me: Hi! I'm Katherine. I'm in my second year here at UW and I'm loving it more than I thought was possible! From the Honors Program, to the many extracurricular opportunities, to the fantastic professors, and of course my inspiring fellow students, there are so many things to love about UW. I'm planning to major in Political Science, and minor in International Studies. I'm also looking at the Law, Societies, and Justice major. I love learning about politics and government, and I've gotten involved in as many things relating to politics and civic engagement as I can here on campus. I currently work for the ASUW Office of Government Relations. I have lived in Seattle my whole life, so if you ever need advice on anything related to the city...public transportation, fun parks, good restaurants, potential internships, or anything else, I'd be happy to help you out.
