Purti Pareek, NYU sophomore, talks about her experience as a Fellow at Organizing for Action.
Because of my time as a Fall Fellow at Organizing for Action (OFA), I honed my knowledge of different public policies such as the Affordable Care Act and Comprehensive Immigration Reform and the roadblocks that exist between these policies and getting them passed. I gained important skill sets, which are necessary in order for me to become an effective grassroots organizer. I am forever grateful for OFA because of the different people I met: all of different ages and from different backgrounds. It was refreshing to be working with people that had an interest in the same things as I did but could provide a different perspective on them. OFA provided me with an invaluable experience because it opened doors through which I could further explore my professional interests and support my personal interests. So if you are interested in things like organizing, public policy, and anything in between, definitely apply to be a Spring Fellow and you will not regret it!
