Congrats to the Labor Capital Strategies Fall 2021 Fellows!
Jackson Edwards (COL ’23)
AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust
Jackson Edwards is a junior majoring in Government at Georgetown University. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Jackson’s interest in Government stems from his lived experience: climate change-induced hurricanes devastating his city, active shooters forcing school lockdowns, a mismanaged pandemic uprooting his normal lifestyle. Hoping to be a catalyst for progressive change, Jackson decided to take a semester off of school to organize his hometown of Houston, Texas for the Biden-Harris ticket—and then worked on the proceeding Georgia Senate runoffs. On both campaigns, Jackson joined a union, which piqued his interest in learning more about labor issues. In his free time, Jackson enjoys playing tennis, poker, chess, and traveling.
Sofia Chen Ma (MSB ’23)
Alan Biller and Associates
Sofia Chen Ma is a junior at Georgetown University, where she is pursuing a major in finance and a minor in computer science. On-campus, Sofia serves as a board member for the Georgetown Scholars Program, which provides resources and community to first-generation and/or low-income students. She has also worked as a student analyst for the Beeck Center and is passionate about leading projects with a social impact mission. Outside of Georgetown, she enjoys finding food hubs and rooting for her favorite sports teams. Sofia is excited to join Alan Biller and Associates as part of the Fall 2021 Labor Capital Strategies fellowship. In the future, she hopes to pursue opportunities in private equity that advance impact investing and ESG initiatives.
Percy Metcalf (GU Law ’24)
Healthy Markets Associates
Percy is a dual degree candidate at both the Georgetown School of Foreign Service and the Georgetown University Law Center, completing a master’s in Eurasian, Russian and Eastern European affairs in addition to a J.D.. Percy’s interest in labor originated in Poland while on a Fulbright research award to study the cultural bases for the U.S.-Polish relationship, which he undertook after first gaining his undergraduate degree in international affairs with a major in Culture and Politics. Poland’s triumph over its own authoritarian dictatorship by means of the Solidarity trade union inspired an admiration for organized labor that has persisted since his return to the United States, and which he hopes to turn into a career in the international labor space. Percy has held a number of internships, including, most recently, a position at Global Labor Justice-International Labor Rights Forum, a non-profit that supports unions and organizers around the world.
