Where Are They Now? Meet COSSPP Alum Maya Vazquez

What have you been up to since you graduated?

I graduated in Spring 2021 with a B.S. in Political Science. I am beginning law school at the University of Maryland next week! I just got settled down in Baltimore and miss Tallahassee so much.

How did your degree in social science help inform your path?

My degree in social science allowed me to participate in several research projects at FSU. Specifically, my research on personal and systemic identifiers impacting the amount of legislation Congresswomen pass during their terms inspired me to pursue a legal career. My current goal is to work as a government attorney, and my interest in governing bodies definitely flourished while I was pursuing my major at FSU.

What is your favorite memory or spot on campus?

My favorite spot on campus are the benches in front of Strozier, the ones underneath the beautiful tree! I always loved moving outside when the weather was nice to study and get a change of scenery.
