Why The Channels?
The Channels taught me invaluable skills to think critically, analysis and scrutinize primary sources, leverage public records, write quickly and clearly on deadline, and most importantly: hold public officials accountable.
I owe the Channels my success in thriving in the hectic and competitive political campaign world in Washington, D.C., where I also lead a large political activist organization dedicated to social justice in my spare time.
