B.A. Political Science (emphasis in American Politics), Minor in Communications
I am incredibly interested in politics and find myself either searching the internet or watching the news for the latest news in the political world.
I find this as a genuine passion of mine and not just a job which is why I spend a good chunk of my free time researching matters related to the political science field and why I know a lot about current matters in general.
I am incredibly excited to be given the opportunity to be given real world experience of working in the political science type of job arena so I can gain insight into what happens in jobs like these.
My fraternity of Phi Sigma Kappa instilled me with the traits of brotherhood, scholarship, and character and I believe these will help me promote success in the workplace.
I have been told I am a great communicator and conversationalist and I know that this is very useful and valuable in the workplace. I can express my thoughts very concisely and make clear what I am trying to say and do.
I am a very dedicated and loyal person and worker and take the opportunities I am given very seriously and am very respectful.
I am very tech savvy as well and am very accustomed to using computers and smartphones and regularly help people with issues they have with their devices and can work around and solve problems.
