Type of Internship: Congressional Office

I am originally from Macon, GA and graduated from Stratford Academy. While at UGA, I have found my passions in the study of intelligence and Southern history (though not necessarily together). I enjoy looking at the politics behind the politics, like those forces that influence the day-to-day operations of Capitol Hill, as well as military/defense issues.
