YOLO Queen Can’t Wait to Conquer Washington

Though she’ll spend this summer learning the ropes within the office of Pennsylvania state Sen. Sean Wiley, “You Only Legislate Once” advocate Zainab Javed assures HOH that the District remains her first love.

The Mercyhurst University junior is still working her way through a political science and strategic communications track, but she insists Congress has been on her mind since way back when.

“I’ve wanted to be a staffer since middle school,” Javed said. “I’ve been overexposed to ‘The West Wing,’ so I run around thinking I’m Josh Lyman.”

She’s fairly certain her natural goofiness may preclude her from running for office — “I don’t think the electorate will take me seriously once they find out I once did a dreamcast of members of Congress as Jersey Shore characters,” she posited — but seems confident it could pay dividends elsewhere.

“I’d also like to do some work in political humor eventually,” Javed said.
