Sudria Twyman

Growing up just outside of the nation’s capital, to Sudria, politics was always synonymous with everyday life. However, it wasn’t until attending Spelman College in Atlanta, GA that Sudria began to fully appreciate the impact the decisions made in Washington had on a national level. Suddenly, a casual interest in politics turned into a passion, motivating Sudria to switch her major from economics to political science. As a founding member of Spelman's Young Democrats of America chapter, Sudria enthusiastically rallied her campus and surrounding community’s involvement in the 2008 presidential election. Sudria also served as a congressional intern for the Majority Whip Congressman James E. Clyburn.

Sudria is a recent graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law, where she earned her Juris Doctor degree in May 2021. Sudria was very active in her law school community as a member of the Mock Trial Bar, Women in Law, and the National Black Law Students Association. While in law school, Sudria worked as a law clerk for the Ways and Means Committee in the South Carolina House of Representatives. She also served as a summer law clerk at Demand Justice and a judicial intern in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland.

Prior to law school, Sudria gained over 8 years of experience in the hospitality industry, serving in managerial roles at The Leaf Cigar Lounge, Georgetown Cupcake, and other food and beverage establishments.

While most of Sudria’s free time is spent navigating life as a new mom, she still enjoys cooking, crafting, volunteering, and planning events when she has the opportunity.
