Tufts undergrad participates in legislative internship program
BOSTON – Senator Michael O. Moore (D-Millbury) welcomed Sophia Autor of Newton, Massachusetts to the State House as part of the legislative intern program. Sophia is interning with Senator Moore on Beacon Hill two days a week during the spring semester.
“I appreciate Sophia’s interest in public policy, and her help with researching a wide array of issues during her time with my office,” said Senator Moore. “She is a smart, caring and talented individual with a bright future ahead of her.”
Sophia, the daughter of Marika Tatsutani and David Autor, attends Tufts University where she is pursuing a bachelor’s degree with a double major in International Relations and Economics. A senior graduating in May of this year, she is a member of the Tufts Women’s Ultimate Frisbee Team and the Manager of the Spanish Language House at Tufts.
Last year, Sophia interned at Inquilinos Boricuas en Acción, a non-profit organization that serves the low-income housing community of Villa Victoria in South Boston. She has also served as a Harvard Summer Democracy Fellow at Public Citizen, a consumer rights advocate and government watchdog. Sophia hopes to continue working in public policy after graduating.
