Applied Politics

Kerman Goodin is a third-year student from Americus, GA, pursuing a double-major in Political Science and Theatre. Growing up, Kerman developed an intense fascination with ¬†American politics, and it is this fascination which has led to his desired career within the political arena following graduation either as a lobbyist, politician, or activist. Prior to attending the University of Georgia, Kerman had the privilege of serving as a Page for the United States Senate after being appointed to the position by Senator Johnny Isakson. It was this experience which solidified and validated Kerman’s hopes for the future, and he hopes to once again work with Senator Isakson while in college and following graduation from college. While in college, Kerman has also been fortunate enough to do a large amount of work with the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities in and around Athens, GA, and it is this work which Kerman hopes to continue in the years following college. Kerman is an active member of the Baptist Collegiate Ministries on campus and serves as an American Sign Language interpreter for the ministry as well as one of the members of its leadership team. He is also a member of College Republicans, On the Spot Improv, Hands In!, and Children’s Theatre Troupe. Kerman lives his life believing that life is difficult and painful, and it is his hope that whatever he does may be done to bring joy into the lives of the people he encounters.
