JAIA CLINGHAM-DAVID, COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR
Jaia Clingham-David is a sophomore at Cornell University majoring in government with a tentative minor in Spanish. Although she grew up in Pennsylvania, most of her family was born and raised in New York City. Jaia hopes that going to college in Ithaca and serving on the Cornell Dems's e-board will help her become more engaged in NY state politics.
Thanks to her parents, Jaia has always been politically engaged. Her interest in government and politics arose from attending rallies and watching The Daily Show as a child. After her first internship with a local municipality, Jaia found her passion in government and working to better her community. In the summer of 2017, Jaia worked in the NYC Comptroller’s Press Office.
In her free time, Jaia enjoys cooking, watching movies, and CrossFit.
