Because I am most interested in direct advocacy & “wonky” policy conversations, the legislative branch is the most compelling to me. Congresspeople are tasked with directly representing their constituents and balancing the needs and values of their districts with how they view certain policies and laws. Though we can sometimes think of our legislators with a binary lens – blue and red, democrat and republican, good or bad – good legislation is more nuanced than that. For those reasons, I believe that I would find the most value in working for the legislative branch.
