Emily Gold, a first-year political science student from Manchester, is starting her academic career at UNH with a once-in-a-lifetime experience serving as an official page to the New Hampshire delegation attending the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

Gold, 18, is the only UNH student serving in an official capacity as a page or delegate at either national political convention.

“Being selected as a page was something I did not expect, but I am honored to be given the opportunity,” Gold said. “Getting involved in politics allows students to have a stronger say in the future of their country. We are all citizens of the United States, and we all want to live in a prosperous country so we should all do our part instead of watching others change the world.”
