Fellowship Spotlight: Isabel Archer

Isabel Archer is a second-year political science major with a minor in women’s studies. As a Legislative Fellow, she hopes to learn about the behind-the-scenes of politics, particularly what it is like to campaign and be a part of the legislative session. Throughout her experience in the Fellowship so far, Isabel has learned the importance of politicians listening to their community and basing their agenda on their community’s needs. Her motivation for working in politics is a desire to make an impact in her community. Before joining the Fellowship, Isabel interned at the Public Defense Office in Atlanta, Georgia, where she got to sit in on bond hearings and cases. This experience sparked her interest in criminal law. After graduation, Isabel aims to attend law school and become a public defender. In addition to the Fellowship, she also serves as the house manager and chair for diversity and inclusion at the Phi Mu fraternity and works with Young Democrats at UGA as a community outreach committee member. Through the Phi Alpha Delta law fraternity, she gets to connect with others interested in a career in law. Isabel’s favorite UGA memory is the first time she got to see the stadium lights turn red.
