Good day to you all! Being one of the newer members on this team, I was asked to do an introductory post about myself. If you know me, you know that should not be a problem at all seeing how much I love to talk about myself. So here we go.
My name is Joash Thomas and I am all but 21 years old. I am currently wrapping up my Senior year at Georgia State University where I have the privilege of serving as a Student Government Senator (hey
WRAS Turner Field) and the Chairman of the ever-growing College Republican chapter there (full disclosure). I study Political Science with a Concentration in International Affairs in addition to a Minor in Public Policy. So yes, I get the best of both worlds.
My story? I was born and raised in Mumbai, India for the first 18 years of my life after which my family decided to move to Atlanta, GA in search of better opportunities. I started working my way through College, first at the Coca-Cola Company (again, full disclosure) and then later at school. In the meantime, I also had the privilege of Interning for State Representatives Scot Turner and Michael Caldwell, which eventually turned into a job as Representative Caldwell’s Aide during session this Spring. I currently work for State Representative Timothy Barr as his Communications Director (I should give up on “full disclosures” at this point) and am honored to now Intern for the amazing team here at Peach Pundit.
My role here will be centered around contributing to the Peach Pundit Daily (Mike Hassinger asked me to tell you to Sign up here) and will occasionally even involve contributing posts. I am grateful for this opportunity and I look forward to doing my bit to engage y’all with the Political happenings in the Peach State. Oh and yeah, Go State!
