Stephen Lassiter is a Master of Public Affairs (MPA) candidate at Princeton University. His writing and editing experience spans from high school instruction to U.S. politics. In the 2016 campaign cycle he served as the Foreign Policy Director to a U.S. presidential candidate, drafting speeches and Op-Eds placed in national media outlets. From 2011-2014 he served as a Senior Legislative Assistant to a prominent U.S. Congressman, drafting and editing official correspondence and Op-Eds published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and CNN. He also served as a Legislative Correspondent for a U.S. Senator. Prior to working in politics, Stephen taught writing and International Baccalaureate English at a private high school in the Middle East. One of the most rewarding parts of that job was reviewing the college essays of his students who were admitted to top-tier universities including Harvard and Yale.
