EXPERIENCES AT LASELL:
At Lasell, you jump-start your career though internships. I interned with a highly respected senator in the Massachusetts State House and turned that job into a full-time position as a Legislative Aide. The classes I took while interning complemented what I was learning on the job and vice versa. In my organizational behavior class, for example, we studied personality traits and learned how to apply the knowledge to navigate through the politics of any workplace.

Some of my professors worked for government agencies and it was clear they spoke from experience. They took a lot of time educating us on the many opportunities open to criminal justice majors—from working for the ATF, FBI, or CIA to serving in government to working as a park ranger.

I'd like to run for elected office at some point. I think it's one of the highest honors to be asked to represent the people in your district. To help improve communities is satisfying and admirable work.
