My name is Tiffany Gilligan and I am studying at American University in Washington D.C., with a major in Communications, Legal Institutions, Economics, and Government (CLEG). I’m originally from a small town in Upstate New York called Newark. In addition to working towards my bachelors degree I am also earning a certificate in Advanced Leadership Studies through the School of Public Affairs Leadership Program. At AU I am involved in Rotaract Club and I am a member of the dance team. I am very passionate about giving back to the community and I hope to do so through Rotaract as a continuation of my service through Interact Club. After college I plan to attend law school in hopes of pursuing my passion for justice. In addition I have many other passions including writing and policy. I hope to take advantage of everything D.C. has in store for me.
