An update from Vanessa, a senior majoring in public policy and economics, with minors in political science and philosophy, who is investigating why strict scrutiny was never applied to gender discrimination cases in the Supreme Court:
We arrived in Washington, D.C., today. After a long and tiring day, I am starting to feel nervous, excited and a bit overwhelmed to begin my research tomorrow.
First, the basics of today: Updated my Library of Congress reading card (which I’ve never had the opportunity to use due to a lack of experience and knowledge). And we were able to do a bit of exploration of the Library, get comfortable with the area we will be in and take care of the logistics, which was comforting in a sense.
I’m entering into a new world of academic endeavors, and I honestly am not sure of what to expect. All I do know is that I’m glad Professor Kobylka’s on my side to help guide me the whole way!
