Robin Miller is a current Political Science major in the School of Public Affairs at American University in Washington D.C. She is a member of the AU Honors Program, a rigorous four year program focused on interdisciplinary learning and academic excellence. Through the School of Public Affairs, she is also pursuing a Certificate in Advanced Leadership Studies, a program that cultivates leadership skills to prepare students for a future in leadership roles in public service.
Robin prides herself on following what she believes in and trying to create a more just world. She hopes to use her leadership skills to promote this worldview. She dreams of being a campaign manager one day to create a more diverse and representative government.
Robin is heavily involved with political campaigning. She is currently an intern at Sapphire Strategies, a digital campaign firm for progressive candidates. She is looking forward to helping draft content for fundraising emails and digital ads as well as analyze fundraising for multiple progressive candidates and campaigns. Last summer, she completed an internship with the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus, where she was part of a team that coordinated the PAC’s endorsement process for 67 female pro-choice candidates in Massachusetts. She really enjoyed seeing how the endorsement process worked firsthand as well as collaborating directly with female candidates to help their campaigns. She also completed a Campaign Management Training with Emerge Massachusetts, which equipped her with hard skills necessary to run a campaign, such as in creating a field plan, budgeting, messaging, fundraising, GOTV, press, and social media. Two summers ago, Robin completed a fellowship with the Dan Koh for Congress campaign. Dan Koh was a Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in MA-3. She spent the summer knocking on doors (around 2200 of them), phone banking (for over 60 hours), and recruiting a vast network of volunteers from the community.
Robin is heavily involved on campus at American University. Robin is the Vice President and Head of Curriculum Development of AU Civics in the Capitol. She is administering the implementation of a civics curriculum that she developed in 6 middle-school DC Public Charter School classrooms this fall. This original and collaborative curriculum is designed for AU student teachers to teach students about their civil rights and responsibilities. Robin also holds leadership positions as Interclass and Community Coordinator through SPA Leadership and Member-At-Large through Mu Beta Psi, National Honorary Musical Fraternity.
