I am an undergraduate History and Political Science Major at SUNY Potsdam, in Potsdam New York. I am currently working in the History Department as an Undergraduate Learning Assistant, a Teaching Assistant, and as a tutor. I have been named a Department Scholar and Scholarship winner. I have had the honor and privilege of serving as Treasurer and Student Government Senator for two terms for the student History Association. Additionally I am in an elite Research program called 'Presidential Scholars.' My two year project deals with American Foreign Policy towards Cuba in the Cold War under President John F. Kennedy.
