Students Testimonials Slider

Adam Barton

"It is hard to emphasize enough how much the experience impacted me. I came into Georgetown not knowing that I cared about research, yet ESJ helped me discover this passion for research to effect social change."

Mackenzie Price

"After the ESJ Project, I am very excited to write my sociology thesis. As taxing as interviews can be, I am excited to do my thesis because I know how to write a research paper. I know that I can do it."

"The Pulitzer fellowship is something I'm going to look back on as one of the most formative experiences of my life. It's motivated me to amplify voices that have gone unheard, whether in a future career in journalism or through nonprofit work."
