Welcome Two New Voices

Here at New Voices, we're excited to announce that we have two new regular bloggers joining us for the summer, Takao Yamada and Matt Hanzlik.

Name: Takao Yamada
Position: Research!America Science Policy Intern
Education: Georgetown University Law Center c/o 2010
BA in Political Science & English, Hobart College
Previous experience: Takao has worked in industry and been an entrepreneuring restaurateur. Aside from all those college English papers, he has writing experience as a freelance sports reporter.
Fun fact: If the picture doesn't give it away, Takao likes food. He even won a pie eating contest when he was eight.

Some posts you may have seen by Takao so far include: Soda as Sin and Sensationalizing Science Journalism.

Name: Matt Hanzlik
Position: Research!America Science Policy Intern
Education: University of Minnesota c/o 2010
Studying: Public/Non-Profit Management & Entrepreneurial Management
Previous experience: Matt has a strong advocacy background having served as the National Advocacy & Government Affairs Coordinator for the Student Society for Stem Cell Research and as a business and outreach intern at the American Parkinson Disease Association of Minnesota.
Fun fact: Even though he's from a land-locked state (minus all those lakes), Matt wants to learn to barefoot water-ski before the end of the summer.

Matt previously joined New Voices as a guest blogger in January to discuss President Obama's executive order on stem cells.

We're looking forward to Takao and Matt's perspectives and hope you'll welcome them to the New Voices community!
