Major: Double major, Political Science and Environmental and Outdoor Education and Recreation and a Dance minor.
Year in School: Sophomore
Length of time worked at UMD Career and Internship Services: Since February of 2014
Favorite place in Duluth: Leif Erickson Park, I have so many great memories of going there as a kid and playing in the water and skipping rocks.
Best Career advice I’ve been given: Find something you love so much you’d do it for free, but you’re so good at it you get paid.
Career advice for other students: If it doesn’t make you happy, it’s not worth it.
Other: I am currently taking temporary hiatus from school to work for a political action committee in Des Moines, IA. I work for iVote for America, which helps to increase voting rights in swing states. My job consists of a little bit of everything. I plan and host events, recruit volunteers, contact voters, fundraise, and constantly publicize iVote on social media in order to get a strong base of support in Iowa.
