Hello! My name is Heather and I am currently a rising sophomore at American University’s School of Public Affairs, studying Political Science with a minor in International Studies and Advanced Leadership Studies.

In the 2017-2018 school year I am very excited to be the News Editor for the Leadership program’s steering committee! I plan on continuing my research and involvement in congressional and presidential campaigns, national security, women in foreign policy, in addition to honing my passion for writing, editing, and research in the field of political science.
