You can do anything with an English major! Here's what I did with mine…

Upon graduating in December of 2022, I worked as a Congressional Intern for a United States senator. Throughout my internship, I had the opportunity to meet with several political and community leaders, attend various events, and assist constituents with countless issues. I was also able to get a first-hand look at all of the behind-the-scenes work being done by lawmakers, caseworkers, and organizers both locally and in our nation's capital.

Within the next few months, I also hope to apply to law school with the goal of continuing my work in government and public service. I couldn't have done any of this or even considered it as a possibility without all that I learned from being an English major!
