Commence short biography.
Laura Olin was born sort of a while ago now in southern Finland. Reference youth and upbringing in suburbs of Washington, D.C., where all the kids get into politics for want of anything better to do.
Mention education in public schools so that reader can marvel at own tax dollars at work. Devote a few words to early, fairly stupid inclination to be a lawyer, explaining two years at a civil rights legal nonprofit.
Segue into grad school, mentioning growing interest in digital campaigning. Name-check subsequent employers: the Center for American Progress, People For the American Way (insert parenthetical explaining that it’s a liberal advocacy organization with a right-wing name), Blue State Digital, and the campaign to re-elect this guy. Avoid words like “guru,” “maven,” and “ninja” at all freaking costs.
Conclude with sentence about hobbies in order to end on a warmer note conveying personality. Mentions of ukulele-playing and/or pie-baking acceptable.
Obligatory closing reference to content of Tumblr not being representative of employer’s views, only Tumblrer’s own. Joking-but-not-really-joking closing quip asking readers to please not get Tumblrer fired.
