I’m beyond anxious about being interviewed for this firm, I can’t even begin to tell you. There are butterflies in my stomach, and I’m afraid I’ll break into cold sweat and ruin my immaculately done makeup.
Mostly, I’m nervous about meeting the guys at this firm—my future bosses Adam, Cameron, and Chase. They’re power players in town, and they hold real political sway.
Me? I’m just a recent college grad who spends her nights pouring shots for drunk college kids.
I bartend at The Blue Lagoon. It’s a pretty upscale strip club at the far reach of town. It’s pretty exciting to see all the girls dance, and I get asked about doing it myself, but there’s no way I could ever see myself being so bold.
I live in my little nook of an apartment in the middle of downtown, near all the action and the good bookstores and cafes. I know myself and I know my limits.
And I think I know what I want, which is to put my Political Science degree to good use. I didn’t spend four years studying with my head in the books for nothing. I mean to make something of myself and to be a name people recognize.
Holt, Banks, and Shea is a good place to start. After all, they got Austin Bain a.k.a. “President Player” elected, so that means they are very good at what they do.
The thing is, I’ve heard some things… like, they sell themselves to the highest bidder and not necessarily to the person who can do the most good for the country.
That doesn’t run right with me. I have integrity, and it’s important to me that I maintain that.
In the political world, it’s sometimes hard to have an honest reputation. I know you have to do things that may be uncomfortable, but you do them anyway just to get things done.
But I’m also an idealist. I believe in the power of doing good for the world, and I will never let money sway me from that cause. I am determined to preserve my principles no matter what.
