About me: Hi! I'm a Political Science major from Missoula, Montana. I love politics, and spent 13 weeks of last summer in an internship in the US Senate in Washington DC, loving policy more and more every day! I hope to have several other political internships in Seattle and Washington, D.C. in the rest of my college career. I'm a campus tour guide, so I love talking to people and getting to know people. During my freshman year, I was very involved in several programs and committees within the UW student government, the ASUW. Outside ASUW, I have tutored at Dunlap Elementary School through the Pipeline Project, I'm Vice Chair of the U-Pass Advisory Board, and I was an Honors 100 Peer Educator in Fall 2013! In my free time, I obsessively read Politico, the Economist, and the New York Times, occasionally read education and foreign policy journals/studies for fun, drink copious amounts of coffee, ride horses, run (I'm training for a triathlon and a half marathon!) and soak up every bit of sun in Seattle!
