04Health Policy and Communications Fellow , The Lown Institute


The American Studies program at Rutgers gave me an essential grounding in American history, politics, policy, and culture, that formed the basis for my future interest in public policy. The view of an American "ideal" in work, family, and citizenship have changed so much throughout history and yet are still concepts we struggle with as a country today. Learning about this process made me want to be a force in shaping American ideals toward a future of social justice, and gaining more experience in research, writing, and critical thinking has made me confident I can do so.
