About Elizabeth Wheless

I was a double major in German and Government at the College. In my free time, I volunteered at the Heritage Humane Society and worked as a hostess at the Trellis Restaurant and The Royal Chocolate. I also enjoy cooking, reading, pilates and running. I am interested in international relations and hope to intern at a government office. I would like to be a high school teacher. I then plan to go to law school, where I will focus on international law. I was also an intern at the Minority Office of the House Committee on Oversight & Government Reform.
