Rachel James
Student at Drake University

I am currently a first-year student at Drake University, where I am pursuing a double major in Political Science/News.
I consider myself a driven, hard-worker, who is passionate about instilling change and growth both personally and professionally.
My passion and interest in government come from my urge to see nuance be a core aspect of our political system.
