I am Maxwell.
As a first-generation college student, I was never passionate about school until I entered the policy studies program and found what I was truly good at. The program motivated me to make the most of my college experience and gain skills in a variety of different fields. I was able to triple-major. This desire for growth and development led me to pursue my Master of Public Administration (M.P.A.) and a data analytics certificate. At graduation, I accepted a position in D.C. that will allow me to apply everything that I’ve learned in college. My parents and I could not be happier with this outcome, and we attribute a lot of my success to the policy studies program.
