“Over the past year, I have had the honor of representing the University of Kentucky as a presidential fellow for the Center for the Presidency and Congress (CSPC). This experience has gifted me with a new perspective on how our government operates both domestically and abroad, lifelong connections and friends from across the country, and the ability to research a topic I am passionate about, women in Congress. My fellowship would not have been possible without the continued support from my generous sponsor, Mr. Nate Morris, mentorship from Dr. Cynthia Vines, and guidance from Dr. Jennifer Siebenthaler. Being a CSPC presidential fellow and having the opportunity to spend time in Washington, D.C. has been the highlight of my undergraduate experience in the Gatton College of Business, and I look forward to applying the skills I have attained during my fellowship to my future career.”
