Laura Weiss is a communications intern for RepresentWomen this fall. She is from Morristown, New Jersey with a background in international relations and women’s studies from Colgate University. She is currently working on her Master’s in International Affairs with concentrations in the Middle East and Global Gender Policy from The George Washington University. During her time at RepresentWomen, Laura hopes to gain more knowledge about her home country before she jets off into the international community. She aims to make gender equality universal, and strongly believes that the first step is to get more women elected in their governments.
