 During college I interned for a semester in Washington, D.C. and studied policy. I am a trained a lawyer and I am used to fighting for and representing the interests of my clients. I have training in leadership through the Ford Institute Leadership Program, which is an influential program that benefits the community, so I become a facilitator and teacher of the program for two different years as a Community Ambassador Trainer. I have always been interested in and followed politics. At age 10, I helped in the campaign of a family friend. When in High School I was Junior Class Representative and during Senior year I was in the Student Council class. In college, I co-founded and was the President for the Political Science Club and I was a Delegate one year and the next year Head Delegate to the Model United Nations. My third year of law school I was the class Treasurer. However, I am not a politician by the classic definition. I believe in keeping my promises and speaking the truth. I will not say whatever it takes to get elected,
