My Name is Jared Blackburn and I am originally from Winter Haven, FL. I am a second year student at the University of Florida, majoring in Political Science with two minors one in Public Leadership and the other in Leadership Development. I have held internship positions in Senator Marco Rubio’s office in Orlando working in the intake processing department, and I am currently interning with the Department of State with a project within the Department of Education researching post-secondary institutions and their occupational licenses with regards to the state’s requirements for those licenses. Also, during this current Spring Semester I am interning in Senator Marco Rubio’s Washington, D.C. office working with Social issues and other national policies. Then this summer I will continue my stay in Washington, D.C., by gaining more vital work experiences in the Department of States Bureau of Legislative Affairs within the Congressional Correspondence Unit.
My future aspirations are to be able to attend a law school and then either go into the JAG corps or jump right into a law firm to work my way up the ladder. So that one day I can potentially run for Governor of the State of Florida or become a Senator for the State of Florida.
