Being a woman of color who is deeply committed to equity and equality, I look forward to working to reduce the gap in representation to create a legislature that is not only gender balanced but ethnically diverse. Gender disparities exist everywhere - politics, science, business, you name it - there is a lack of female leadership. This can only change when our representation and our leaders include more women. As an outreach intern for RepresentWomen, I’m excited to advocate and push for a more gender balanced cabinet in the upcoming elections.
My name is Ella Seltzer and I am an Outreach and Advocacy Intern for Fall 2020! I am born-and-raised in Oakland, California, so even though I have enjoyed my time on the East Coast and in D.C. for college, I’m truly West Coast at heart. I currently attend American University and am a Junior double majoring in Spanish and Political Science, with a focus in gender, race, and politics. As someone with a passion for politics and gender equality, being able to move across the country for college in the nation’s capital has only deepened that desire to help make meaningful change. After my undergraduate degree, I would love to attend law school, but as a college student in the time of COVID-19, I am just hoping to still be able to study abroad!
My name is Bobbie Bell, an outreach and advocacy intern for the fall 2020 semester at RepresentWomen. I am from Brooklyn, New York, aka “the big apple,” where I am pursuing my bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Media Studies at Brooklyn College. Currently an upper senior, I intend on graduating from Brooklyn College in December of this year. Over the course of the summer, I had the chance to run a period drive in my own community, collecting numerous donations for women in need during the pandemic. Although running a period drive virtually due to the coronavirus, I found creative ways to gain support.
