About Me

Welcome to my Portfolio!

My name is Faith Boehm! I am a rising senior at American University studying political science and women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. Also, I am a proud member of the School of Public Affairs (SPA) Leadership Program. Finally, I am part of the BA/MPA program within SPA, so I will graduate with my Master’s in Public Administration in December 2021.

At my core, I want to help people. I am passionate about LGBT+, gender, economic and racial equality. In focusing on these issues, I aim to increase opportunities for those who have been neglected in the past. A point of emphasis for me is that diversity is important, but it is meaningless if there is little to no inclusion. Having different voices and backgrounds at the table can only strengthen the work and its impact.

I see my future involving public service. As I navigate my way through college, I look forward to exploring new opportunities. While at AU, I have had many wonderful experiences, including working as a desk receptionist for Housing and Residence Life, serving as a Resident Assistant for approximately 50 first-year students, and interning with the AIDS Institute.
