DC Semester Q and A

Leanna Kay Brown
Fall 2009

My semester in DC provided me with an experience valuable to nearly all employers and opened me to possibilities I had yet to consider.

Brief bio:

I am from Watkinsville, Georgia and received my undergraduate degree in international affairs and my master’s degree in international policy.  I started traveling at a young age, which led to my enthusiasm for international politics.  National security and government have driven my academic pursuits since I was 13 years old, though my interests are varied and include issues from agriculture to space.  I look forward to new adventures and value good friends and family with which to share them

Expected graduation:

May 2010, May 2012

Degree objective:

Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs, Masters in International Policy

Why I went:

To gain insight into how our country functions and to experience the city from an insider’s perspective.

Favorite spot to visit:

Matchbox Pizza or the Jefferson Memorial

Most memorable day:

Touring the dome of the Capitol with my roommate and her Congressman

Why I'm glad I went:

I learned about the legislative process from within and how our country truly operates. I was fortunate to have unique experiences that I will treasure forever no matter where I end up.

Where I interned:


Office of Senator Johnny Isakson
