Tara Okwemba is a Music & Politics Intern at HeadCount. She is a New Jersey native [though she tells people she’s from NYC to avoid any slander], and is a Junior at New York University studying Music Business. Tara has a particular focus on the live music industry, and is incredibly fascinated with HeadCount’s use of an already exciting environment, concerts, to introduce the thrilling opportunity of registering to vote. She is interested in taking charge and helping lead the political revolution of the millennial generation, starting at live music events.
Tara’s favorite music ranges from Paramore to Anderson .Paak to One Direction, who she believes revolutionized the pop music industry. She enjoys making Spotify playlists and exploring new music on a daily basis.
