Hi,

Overall, you have good quality experience and if presented well through the resume, essays and recommendations, it should work in your favor. Your career goals need to be thought through better. I am not aware of what is revenue management in a startup. I would strip it down to calling it sales/ business development - its better to use simpler words instead of jargon words and fancy positions. That also holds for your long term goals as well.
For the sake of the application, you will have to zero in on one career path. It will be hard to say by analysing this short description whether you should talk about consulting or a startup, which is a space where you don't seem to have prior experience.

Applying for Fall 2019
Age: 24
Gender: F
Ethnicity: Pakistani (US born and raised)
UG School: Top 20 Public University, Majored in Political Science w/ Minor in Applied Statistics 3.75 GPA
GRE: 167 Quant, 160 Verbal, 5.5 AWA
Work Exp:
-Interned in Parliament
-3 Yrs at Corporate Retailer working as a Planning Analyst managing $400M P&L in Consumer Electronics (2 years) and a Negotiations Consultant/Project Manager driving over $100M in cost savings for organization through vendor category negotiations, contract support, etc. across Beauty and Home divisions
Extracurricular: Volunteer at non-profit, mentor (3 mentees) for D&I organization, and involved in local elections
Educational Goal: Dual MBA/MPP
Career Aspirations:
Social Impact - specifically working for a government agency like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau or SEC OR Non-profit

Biggest concern: Something else I'd like to explore is marketing for Multicultural brands, and I think that's a much cleaner story for me given my background in retail and specifically working with a lot of big beauty vendors, but I don't know if it's worth it to compromise total authenticity as social impact is my passion.

Thoughts?
