Hey y’all. As crazy as it may be, those in charge have decided to let another new intern on to the team, and I’m excited to have the privilege of joining them.
My name is Alex Rowell, and I was born and raised down in Valdosta, Georgia. Politics has always been in my blood – when I was growing up, my family’s Sunday dinners would often turn into something of a live-action reenactment of a Peach Pundit comments page.
I’ve since migrated up to Athens, where I’m in my senior year studying Economics and International Affairs at the University of Georgia. Luckily, I’m currently taking classes from the greats legally required to be quoted in any Georgia politics news article: Drs. Charles Bullock and Keith Poole. On campus, I’m working as president of the UGA Young Democrats with an incredible group of fellow students to turn this state blue. When I’m not politicking, you can find me at shows at the Georgia Theatre and 40 Watt or cheering on the Dawgs on Saturdays in the fall.
It’s an honor to be able to intern for this site, and I look forward to learning from and discussing and debating with such a great crowd of editors, writers, and readers.
