Running Start has provided me with the skills, encouragement and network to enter the realm of politics. The Star Fellowship allowed me to experience work on Capitol Hill and also introduced me to many aspects of politics such as campaign consulting and media work and research – neither of which I was familiar with before the fellowship. Running Start?s networking events and political seminars broadened my knowledge of politics and helped to connect me with many movers and shakers in Washington DC. I can wholeheartedly say that I have become inspired to run for office, be it for local, state, or national politics, and this is mainly because of my experience with Running Start and the Star Fellowship.
