Paper qualifications are no substitute for real-life experience.

Wilkes in Washington, D.C. blog thumbnail image.Follow Wilkes University Senior Emma Leach in our Nation's Capital.

Originally from Buffalo, NY, I moved to Pennsylvania in 2004. As a 2013 graduate from Pleasant Valley High School, I began my career at Wilkes University. In 2013, I really had no clue as to what an acceptance letter from Wilkes University would turn into. In fact, I had no idea it would lead me to Washington D.C. I am entering my senior year at Wilkes and it is definitely going to be a year to remember. I am a political science major with minors in policy studies and international studies. Today, I am the Chair of the Wilkes University College Republicans, Vice President of the Pre Law Society, and my personal favorite, an E-Mentor. If it is one thing Wilkes University has taught me, it is leadership.
