Eduardo Aviles, a Master’s student in the Political Science department, just graduated from GALEO’s Leadership Institute.  According to their website, GALEO’s mission is to increase civic engagement and leadership among the Latino/Hispanic community across Georgia. After asking Eduardo his thoughts about the leadership institute he stated that “I had no idea how much of an impact it would have. With my concentration being in Professional Politics I think that a program like GALEO is beneficial as it gave me the opportunity to network with others interested or already working in the field and also taught me how to best prepare if running for an office is an interest. With the completion of the GALEO program and after receiving my degree from GSU I would like to further pursue a career in advocacy or maybe even run for a local office.” More information about GALEO can be found at: http://galeo.org/leadership/gil/
