In one of the first weeks of my summer at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in Washington D.C., the chairman came down to introduce himself to the interns. When introducing ourselves he asked the interns to answer “how we found the DCCC, or how the DCCC found us.” As my fellow interns went around the room, I quickly realized that my story was not like the rest of my peers.
“My aunt is a major political influencer and she connected me.”
“My brother used to work here.”
“My mother is a Congresswoman.”
