Originally from Michigan, I moved to Long Beach in 2011 and enrolled at CSULB that fall semester. I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from CSULB in 2013, with a concentration in political theory. After graduation I interned for U.S. Congressman Alan Lowenthal and worked on several political campaigns in the Long Beach area. In 2015 I realized that the trajectory I had chosen wasn’t as appetizing as I hoped it would be. It was then that I decided to apply to CSULB’s political science graduate program with the intent of becoming a collegiate professor. I considered political science graduate programs at other universities, but decide on CSULB for several different reasons. The strong academic credentials that the department faculty bring into the classroom, along with the intimacy of the program, that in turn facilitated beneficial and meaningful relationships with cohorts, were among the reasons. CSULB’s program ranked as a first choice in furthering my academic career. I am looking forward to continuing the graduate program this fall semester.
