Graduate Student at Mills College
United States Of America (USA)
Lisel Brunson completed a dual degree at California State University East Bay in Sociology and Communication in 2014 and was immediately accepted to Mills College for their Masters in Public Policy program. She recently finished the program and graduated in May of 2016. She decided to attend Mills College because of their lifelong mission of empowering women through education, as Mills has always been primarily a women’s college. The nurturing learning environment, coupled with the amazing women she got to know and build relationships with, provided a truly extraordinary experience for her. Soon after graduating, she was hired to do a four-month internship at Lake Research Partners (LRP) in their Berkeley, CA office. LRP is based in Washington, DC and is headed by Celinda Lake, a lifetime advocate for women’s rights.
