My name is Jacqueline Kincaid; a freshman at American University’s School of Public Affairs in Washington, D.C. I am pursuing a major in Political Science and minor in Spanish. Additionally, I plan to graduate with a certificate in Advanced Leadership Studies through the School of Public Affairs’ Leadership Program, a certificate in Political Thought with the Lincoln Scholars Program, and a certificate in Spanish Translation. My experience in leadership, civic engagement, and voluntary public service informs my mindful yet results-driven approach to both coursework and on-campus involvement. I consider myself a ‘forever student,’ eager to couple my academic foundations with real-world exploration and experience.
