Emma McMahon


Wellesley College

Greater Boston Area

My interests and experiences are wide varied, but follow the path of the pursuit of knowledge. I am passionate about connecting the many parts of my life into cohesive fluent policy. I am starting my career in policy so that I can change the future of the world.


Wellesley College

Bachelors of Arts, International Relations — Economics

One class, and the professor that taught it helped me choose my major and set my life goal: change the world through writing dynamic policy.

Principles of Macroeconomics, my first real exposure to macroeconomics, showed me the power in combining data, models, and qualitative analysis. I have since dedicated my life to changing domestic and international policy for the better.


True Inspiration

Gabrielle Giffords has inspired me since she was elected to the Arizona State Senate in 2002. That year I first became involved with politics. At nine years old I did not have a concept of the political system, I only knew that it was important. I lobbied my town council to create a dog park. Unsurprisingly, I failed. My proposal was passed over in favor of new police cars, but I got bit by the bug.

That was not the end of Gabby and my story. I was selected to serve as her Congressional page in Washington. in 2010. My first summer on the Hill was filled with monotonous procedure, but I was enthralled. The next year we survived the tragic shooting in Tucson on January 8th, 2011. Since then I have become an advocate for gun safety.
