Is this resume for a job? If so needs to be revised. If you do not have strong work experience, develop a career objective. Normally your education, licensure etc is at the end of the resume, that needs to be expanded, what is your degree?

Your work experience needs to flush out your skills, using more adjectives, action words. What does successfully supervised and coordinated mean?

"Developed a highly integrated cross functional team, that contributed to the successful congressional campaign of ...

Student Government...what role did you assume, elected? appointed? What did you contribute or accomplish during your tenure?

Your resume does not pop, a hiring manager spends about 20 seconds screening, and you need to get their attention immediately both by contant and style to have them take the time to read in depth

You have included more or less the right sort of information. You should probably expand on some of your entries, but which ones depend upon what job are you applying for. Usually, you try to tailor your descriptions of your experiences to match whatever you think your prospective employer is looking for.

You need to put your resume in a better format, too, but that is impossible to do on this site. You can find resume templates, though, in MS Word, or online if you use another word processor.
