I’m Matt Enriquez (he/him/his). I’m a Worcester, MA born, Boston raised, first generation Ecuadorian American senior Political Communication major from Emerson College. As a person from Massachusetts, I am not feeling this southern heat as I make my walks up Capitol Hill for my internship at the U.S. House of Representatives at my representative’s office
I found direction and purpose for cultivating social change by working for my City Councilor Sarai Rivera, the first Afro-Latina councilor in Worcester’s history. That was my trial run for what I’m doing now at representative’s office. Considering the context of a situation, I use my communication skills to win over others to create positive change. I dance salsa just as passionately as I speak my piece on social justice issues, specifically issues relating to education and immigration reform.
In my free time I love playing drums. Since I was twelve, I’ve done concert, jazz, and marching band. I jumped around and played in different bands in college. I want to see if I can jam with a group while I’m down here in D.C.
I’m looking forward to expressing my experiences to you!
