Jason Frank is using his love for Youth in Government, AP U.S. History, and reporting to begin an international journey.
He hopes to pursue a career in international relations. As an upcoming junior, Frank is planting the roots by closely following the 2016 Presidential election and actively participating in ConVal’s extra-curricular activities.
This affinity for politics first began with the 2008 Presidential Election. “My love of reality television blossomed into a love for politics,” Frank said.
He said the 2008 election reminded him of a game show. When the different candidates running would drop out, he would relate them to game show contestants being eliminated.
“It’s something I’m very passionate about as far as politics go,” Frank said about reporting.
This lead to Frank attending the Presidency and the Press at Franklin Pierce University to express his journalistic talents and political knowledge.
