I was always frustrated with democratic dilemma even before I knew what it meant. Not only did I not understand why citizens were not informed and engaged in our democratic process, but I was also annoyed by it. Realizing this is what keep the fire burning in my belly I knew I wanted a career that put me in front of voters so I can informed and excite them to participate. Politics was the conclusion I came to, so in high school interned with Congressman Steny Hoyer to get a feel for the profession. I loved every minutes of it engaging voters and helping them with the issues that they really needed help with. When arriving at college I decided to be a political science/ public policy major because this is how I saw myself making real change. For one my political science classes will help me understand the democratic process more and my public policy classes with teach my how to come up with solutions to the problem. The career where I can best use my skills my dream career would be a filed organizer for campaigns. The best campaigns are the ones on the ground talking with the voters and telling them what’s at stake if they don’t participate. When one begins to stop, talk and take action others with follow and real change will begin. Being an organizer is how I see myself riding this United States of the democratic dilemma.
