I really nerd out on policy. I want to be more into it, without having to be a lawyer! Campaign life isn’t for me either, but I would not mind working for someone in a political office. I think the narrative behind policy is so interesting, but I think I have too big of a mouth to run for office. I need to find someone who is a little more polished, but will say what I’m trying to say!

I like being in the background, and I even like the idea of working for local government. I think local and city government is where you see immediate results, like the people who work for Des Moines, they have a very important role whether or not they realize it. You need to have good people in city government; you need the city council, civilian rights department, parks and recreation department to care in order to make things work.
