Motivated U student promotes women in politics.

Helping Women Enter Politics

While some students are struggling to keep up their grades and social life, Kendahl Melvin is a track and field star, full-time student, Associated Students senior class president, and a major advocate for women in politics. A major in political science and international studies, Melvin has seen that while half of the Utah population is women, not enough women serve in state government. After working in the Hinckley Institute for several years and doing an international internship with the European parliament, Melvin created the first university partnership with Real Women Run to encourage more women to enter politics.
