From the OC Register:
UC Irvine graduate Melissa Ramoso (class of ’07) is the youngest Filipino- American to run for office in California. This election season, the 30-year-old Democrat is seeking a spot on the Artesia City Council. Although her history in the public sector may draw a clear path to her political aspirations, Ramoso didn’t always know her true ambition. When Ramoso enrolled at Cypress College, she dreamed of working in computer science. Instead, she fell in love with political science and transferred to UC Irvine to pursue a career in the public sector.
