Placement: Office of the County Executive - Privacy Office
Educational Institution: San Jose State University
During my fellowship, I had the opportunity to work on projects that employed risk-driven decision making and operational efficiency. These contributions have not only had an immediate impact but are also designed to serve the office long after my tenure. My experience allowed me to engage deeply with meaningful policies, further cementing my commitment to public service. Navigating the County's intricate bureaucratic landscape taught me the significance of stakeholder engagement, effective communication, and strategic planning, all crucial elements for success in a governmental setting. This fellowship has been instrumental in shaping my career goals, which include further education in law school and a return to the public sector, enriched by new skills and a deeper understanding of public service.
