About Me

Hi! My Name is Maxwell Mock and I am currently a Senior at American University. I am majoring in Political Science, with a Minor in Business Administration. I am also seeking certification in Advanced Leadership through the School of Public Affairs Leadership program.

Governmental Affairs has been something that has interested me for most of my life. After taking my first U.S. History class, I have been fascinated with learning how the government functions, as well as the political ideologies that are involved. Having grown up with parents of different parties, I have heard both sides of every argument.

From a young age, I have loved being a part of growing organizations and interacting with others in group events. I began with helping out the community as a Boy Scout, and eventually rose up and to become the Senior Patrol Leader, where I led an organization of over 100 scouts.

When I have free time, I love to explore nature and the outdoors. I have trekked through most of the country, from camping in the Black Hills of South Dakota, to canoeing in the Allagash River in Northern Maine, to even hiking through the desert of New Mexico. I also enjoy playing Ultimate frisbee with friends as well as running through the city of Washington DC.
