A Serendipitous Path to Public Service


Have you ever stumbled on a moment that changed your future? Maim Hoque did, and it propelled him on a path to public service.

After his summer with PPIA, Maim explored many kinds of public service positions. He earned a fellowship with ExpandED Schools, an organization that seeks to expand and strengthen the afterschool sector, and taught public speaking and debate to high school students in New York City through the American Debate League. He worked as a research and development program associate through AmeriCorps VISTA at the New York City Department of Education. He served as a Frédéric Bastiat fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, learning the academic foundations for contemporary policy analysis and policy-relevant academic research.

Together, these experiences led him to his current venture: pursuing a master of science in public policy and management at Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy.
