VALUES + PRACTICES
I value direct and honest communication. I work hard and always bring my best to my job. My approach is to always think outside the box and swing big; because, you never hit the home runs you don't go for.
(Please don't ask me more about sports, this analogy is the extent of my knowledge)

I'm excellent at office trivia games.

I always work to find constructive solutions to problems.
I write the best baby-themed parody songs.

ONE LAST THING:
I've been following Rep. Ocasio-Cortez from her primary beginnings in 2018.
To see her soar above incumbent Crowley while humbly and cooly facing criticism at every turn - it made me feel like I had won, too - even when my own candidate's primary campaign ended in defeat.
I had no girlhood designs of political work or activism. My eventual desire to become C. J. Cregg in The West Wing had more to do with Allison Janney than any true political machinations. It's 2020 now, and to be given an opportunity to work for Rep. Ocasio-Cortez - a young woman - who is creating tangible difference in today's political landscape fighting for marginalized Americans, would be an honor I didn't know I dreamed of.
But, it's time to break out that vision board, y'all.
We've got things to do.
