Born and raised in Wilton, Connecticut I chose to attend American University in Washington D.C. and study in the prestigious School of Public Affairs. I am a freshman pursuing a BA in Communications, Legal Institutions, Economics, and Government (CLEG), and am also in the School of Public Affairs Leadership Program.
Before I came to American University, I demonstrated the valuable skills of leadership, communication, and involvement. In my high school, I was selected Cancelliere of Buon Amico Club. The club successfully facilitated hundreds of new student transitions to Wilton High School and the school system. My time on the Varsity soccer teams and as captain of my track teams improved my communication and leadership skills. At the end of my senior year of high school, I obtained an internship with Congressman Jim Himes. At this internship, my communication skills greatly improved as I partook in both written and conversational correspondence with constituents regarding time-sensitive issues and concerns with government operations. My participation in my high schools model congress club helped me improve my understanding of political discourse, and once again improved my communication skills.
These skills will all be furthered in the programs I am in at American University. I will have the ability to become even more involved in political life, and more immersed in the operations of government. My leadership will be developed in the SPA Leadership Program, and so too will my communication skills. These skills will serve me well as I plan to pursue a career in administrative politics after I attend law school.
