Zev Dickstein

Meet The 11-Year-Old Campaign Manager Invited To The SOTU Address

January 27, 2014

How’s this for a resume? Campaign volunteer for senators Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren and campaign manager for a Cambridge School Committee candidate. Pretty impressive credentials for any aspiring politico. 

But we’re not talking about some ex-political science major. That’s the CV of 11-year-old Zev Dickstein, a sixth-grader at Cambridge Street Upper School. Zev’s hard work has now earned him a seat in the House chamber for the State of the Union address. And before he goes to Washington, he’s here to tell us how he got to this point.
