Growing up as the son of journalists, I was raised on a healthy diet of political arguments at the kitchen table. My passion for public policy came with a side of mashed potatoes. Despite my many attempts to change the topic to the playoff hopes of the Boston Red Sox, I could not successfully escape the “more important” issues facing our nation.

When I was 14, I had my first experience with ranked choice voting (RCV). I was a freshman in high school in San Francisco, and we used it to elect my student body representatives. Given the city of San Francisco had been using RCV for every city election for nearly nine years, I was excited to be using it for our school elections. I saw it as a fair system that ensured the winners would have to appeal to larger portions of the student body in order to get elected. At the time, I was sure it would only be a few years before RCV was adopted in cities and states all over the US.

Meet the Team: Maya Efrati

Usually when I tell people that I chose to go to law school knowing that I didn’t want to be a practicing attorney – the type that goes to court every day and litigates criminal cases, or the kind that writes contracts between multinational companies or small businesses – I get a confused face and a “wait, what?” Yes, that’s right, I respond, I want to work in policy. And I’ve been fortunate enough not only to have that opportunity this year, but to work on policy that sits at the very core of all our other fundamental rights.

Meet the Team: Mohamed Aziz

Ever since I can remember, I have been interested in pursuing a career in public interest. The notion that people could collectively undertake in a common goal – to make the world better, is the central motivation behind my desire to attain an education involving policy. I attended Baldwin-Wallace College and the Ohio Northern University Claude W. Pettit College of Law, where I specialized in policy within the domestic and international context. My political enthusiasm further developed when I attended a week-long constitutional law seminar course involving the intersection between law and legislation in Washington, D.C. I recall sitting in on a Supreme Court case, meeting with elected officials, and taking a tour of the Dirksen Senate Office Building. Quite simply, I became inspired to be at the forefront of change.
