Hi there!

My name Erin Hampson, and I am currently a juniorĀ at American University in Washington, D.C. I am on track to graduate in May 2019 with a degree in CLEG, a minorĀ in psychology, and a leadership studies certificate.

CLEG is an interdisciplinary major encompassing Communications, Law, Economics, and Government. I am focusing on psychology in particular, because I am fascinated with why people do the things they do and the underlying decisions that proceed their actions. I have been interested in leadership studies since I was 13 years old and I am thrilled to continue learning theory and application skills.

From my areas of studies and my own life experiences, I have acquired a skill set that I am proud of. I am extremely organized, well spoken, thoughtful, community oriented, and dependable. I hope to further grow and develop these skills by working on a team of passionate people with a shared interest and excitement about our work. I eventually hope to apply my skills in the world by one day teaching and working with nonprofits about leadership development.


Basic fast facts about me:

  • Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • Raised in Charlotte, North Carolina
  • Hoping to attend either graduate school for a degree in organizational leadership or law school
