Alissa Bombardier Shaw is an Outreach Associate at RepresentWomen. Although half of her life has been spent on the West Coast, Alissa decided to brave the winter weather and spend a quarter studying and interning in DC! She will be graduating in June from the University of California, San Diego with a Bachelor of Science in Political Science with a concentration in Data Analytics. Alissa hopes to use her passion for social justice and helping others to aid RepresentWomen in achieving gender parity in government. After graduating, she plans to continue working in advocacy or public policy and eventually attend graduate school.
