DC Semester: Spring 2017
School: UGA School of Public and International Affairs
Type of Internship: Congressional Office

A sense of adventure was one of the primary reasons as to why I chose to move almost a thousand miles and go to UGA. Originally from Waco, TX, a sense of adventure, as well as my family’s love for the Dawgs, brought me to Athens to discover endless possibilities and opportunities. One of those discoveries was my affection toward political science and especially international affairs. Without friends and mentors telling me about SPIA, I wouldn’t have known about the great programs we have at Georgia. That same sense of adventure then led me to participate in things like Dawg Camp, UGA HEROs, and join a fraternity. It also pushed me to spend my last semester in college in the Washington Semester Program.
