Over quarantine, she discovered a regained interest in politics and did extensive research on the political climate of Appalachia, which was honed by the experiences and research skills she gained while being a part of EPG. She also worked as an intern for the Charles Booker for Senate campaign and spent time organizing information, calling potential voters, and advocating for the candidate. At the end of May, she began working as a barista at Starbucks and soon after started summer classes, she took Introduction to Statistics and U.S/Japanese Policy.
