MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ - Gabriela Arias of Mountainside, New Jersey was recently honored for completing a summer internship with Assemblywoman Nancy Muñoz.

Gabriela is a rising junior at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, where she is a double major in Romance Studies and College of Letters, a small, integrative major that studies Western philosophy, literature and history. Gabriela is also involved in a variety of clubs at Wesleyan, including the Wesleyan Diversity Education Facilitators, which hosts campus discussions and panel events that address both global and campus-wide issues of social justice and equity. She is also a graduate of Kent Place School in Summit.

Gabriela is very happy to have been given the opportunity to work in the Assemblywoman’s office and says, “It was a huge learning experience for me. Though I like to consider myself as someone who is very politically engaged, I knew very little about how the New Jersey Legislature worked, both on a larger and smaller scale, prior to my internship. I am so grateful that I was given an opportunity to learn about it first-hand.”
