– When I was little, I
wanted to go to law school. And it was my first Christmas. My mother told me that Santa Claus was coming in to bring me a present, and I said, “We should call the police “because it’s not nice to
break into people’s houses.” I am very interested
in working in politics. Unexpected skills that have helped me? In high school, I worked
for a while as a hostess, and then as a server. You always have to be polite
and calm and even-headed. I didn’t realize what
a great asset that was until my first internship. Part of my job was to answer phones and get yelled at by constituents for like (laughing) 20 minutes at a time. And you just had to sit there and (laughing) be really polite. The future of my industry, I think, is going to be really exciting because of the different technologies that get applied to politics. I mean, social media
has a great ability to bring information to constituencies. The internships that I’ve been doing, we use social media on
behalf of candidates and on behalf of people already in office to advertise for things like town halls, to advertise for any new
policies they’re fighting for, and explain any kind
of issues and platforms that they think are really important. The majority of the country want to see a more peaceful country, and the only way to move forward is if we work together. So, 10-year plan. I would like to be in D.C. I would like to be working in politics. I mean, no resolution
is ever going to have everything that every
person possibly could want, but politics is a compromise, and how you compromise
and learning to compromise for the greater good, I think there’s something
beautiful in that.
