Juliette Rhinow

Juliette Rhinow is a rising senior at Gettysburg College, where she double majors in Public Policy and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies with a concentration in social justice and human rights. Originally from New Jersey, her post-grad plans include pursuing a federal public service career in Washington, D.C. On campus, Juliette founded the Gettysburg College Amnesty International Chapter to establish a community of activists and carry out educational advocacy initiatives. In valuing reciprocal mentorship, Juliette acts in the capacity of the Public Policy Student Council Chair, Public Policy Peer Learning Assistant, and Residential Assistant. In these roles, she contributes to the development of the Public Policy major, the overall campus, and incoming classes. Juliette's proudest academic accomplishment was conducting research and co-authoring a book chapter with her professor on Crisis Intervention Teams as a progressive approach to criminal justice reform. Juliette applied her liberal arts education to her role as a Legislative Intern with a member of the U.S. House of Representatives gaining first-hand experience in policymaking and public service. Simultaneously, Juliette participated as a Running Start Congressional Fellow, collaborating with her peers during weekly training workshops on pursuing public service careers and running for office. Looking ahead, Juliette will return to D.C. as a summer intern, Running Start Next Step fellow, and Phi Beta Kappa Key into Public Service scholar. She ultimately hopes to apply her liberal arts education to making equitable, efficient, and effective public policy to strengthen democracy and advance human rights, gender equity, education access, and healthcare reform.
