Hey there! I'm a current Junior at Harvard on leave for the Fall semester and wanted to pass along an opportunity that I thought many of you might appreciate looking forward to app season! I know how important ECs were in my application process (especially in interviews), and figured that I may have a 'spike' EC for anyone interested in government, politics, or campaigns.
I'm working on the Virginia Democrats Coordinated Campaign in CD5, where Dr. Webb is making a solid push to flip a historically Republican district! We're looking for Campaign Fellows, who would work closely with me to engage, recruit, and lead volunteers in Virginia to elect Democrats and a secure an equitable and inclusive future. The commitment is about 10-15 hours per week, but I would be happy to adjust the work to fit your schedule. It would give you a great opportunity to affect meaningful change in government, provide a standout EC, and I would be happy to provide a letter of rec and mentor you ahead of app season.
Please ask any questions you have about it and let me know if you're interested! I can also answer a few questions about applying to Harvard and other Ivies, my experience at Harvard, or anything else!
