Kenna Falk is a graduating senior at Cal, graduating with a dual degree in Psychology and Legal Studies. She has pursued her interest in government and law by participating in Cal in the Capital, where she interned with the Grants Management Team in the United States Department of Education, as well as by studying international and Irish Constitutional law while studying abroad in Dublin. She looks forward to being able to serve as a Matsui Local Government Fellow, where she hopes to develop an understanding of how government operates on a local level to directly impact the bay community she now calls home. Additionally, she hopes this experience will help inform future academic and professional pursuits, including obtaining a graduate degree in Public Policy or Law.
