Name: Alexis Manning
School: Spelman College
Graduation Year: 2021
Major: Philosophy

What initially got you interested in politics?
Seeing injustice in the world and wanting to do something about it.

What brought you to SpeakEasy?
SpeakEasy’s mission of creating affordable media for candidates really drew me to the company. It’s extremely important that everyone who runs for office has a chance to reach voters no matter how much money they have. SpeakEasy makes sure that it happens.

What are your post-graduation plans?
I plan on going to law school and getting a J.D. and maybe an M.P.P.

What’s your favorite thing about interning at SpeakEasy so far?
The team! Everyone is so kind and easygoing. It makes for a great working and learning environment.

What’s your first post-Covid trip or activity?
I want to go to any beach with crystal clear water. It doesn’t matter where – I just want my toes in the sand.

Any words of encouragement for this election cycle?
Make sure you do your own research to ensure that you are supporting a candidate that has your best interests at heart.

Name: Zack Cohen
School: George Washington University
Graduation Year: 2022
Major: Political Communication

What initially got you interested in politics?
I started really following politics during the 2016 election cycle and decided that I wanted skin in the game shortly after.

What brought you to SpeakEasy?
SpeakEasy’s reputation speaks for itself and I was compelled by the idea of supporting candidates from all over the country.  I am so humbled that I get to work and learn alongside the team.

What are your post-graduation plans?
Post-graduation, I would love to stay in D.C. and jump between government offices, agencies, and campaigns working to create profound social change on the federal level.

What’s your favorite thing about interning at SpeakEasy so far?
Hands down – it would be working to advance SpeakEasy’s mission of providing accessible media opportunities to forward-thinking candidates up and down the ballot.  All the rest is the cherry on top!

What’s your first post-Covid trip or activity?
I have *tentative* plans to study abroad next summer in Australia.  Stay tuned to see whether or not this will actually happen, but in a perfect world I will be playing with koalas!

Any words of encouragement for this election cycle?
Don’t show up to November 3rd with regrets!  Do everything in your power to engage and mobilize voters because the consequences of not doing so are dangerous.  Shameless plug here to use the SpeakEasy resources (most of which are FREE) because seriously they will provide your campaign with crucial insights to drive you to victory.

Both Alexis and Zack are eager to support the marketing and sales team and help power campaigns across the ballot to win this November. Welcome to the team, Zack and Alexis… and let’s get to work!
