Running Start was a perfect introduction to Washington DC. Having a supportive community of exceptionally accomplished women was a critical part of making my time on Capitol Hill so incredibly exciting and enriching. Our fellowships gave us an opportunity to learn first hand from some of the most influential and inspirational women in American politics, and our weekly seminars were the perfect opportunity to debrief, learn from each other, and meet even more awe-inspiring women from all walks of life, doing incredible things in our nation’s capitol. Most of all, the relationships and connections I made during the STAR fellowship will be with me for a lifetime. I will never forget my STAR sisters, and I have no doubt that they will go on to do extraordinary things. The Running Start team’s dedication to their work of bringing young women into politics is so important. We are tomorrow’s leaders, and thanks to Running Start we are all better prepared to take the next step.
