Doug Collins told us to "bloom where you're planted." I try to live by that everyday!
I am a third year political science student. Currently, I work as an intern for the Washington Semester Program as well as the fundraising coordinator for Joe Hunt’s Congressional campaign. I was born and raised in Augusta, but will probably establish my career in Washington, D.C. or Atlanta. I have hopes to attend law school in Fall 2019!
B.A. of Political Science
Why I went:
I knew that I wanted to spend a semester in DC somehow, and WSP was the perfect opportunity to do so. Not only was I seeking internship experience, but I also wanted to get a feel of what working full time was like.
Favorite spot to visit:
Ebenezer’s Coffeehouse, Hamilton’s Bar & Grill, and Ted’s Bulletin
Most memorable day:
Congressman Rick Allen’s wife took me on a dome tour one Tuesday evening. I thought it was so kind of her to carve out that time for me, and looking out over the district at night was incredible.
Why I'm glad I went:
I made 32 intelligent, driven and awesome friends. I also made great relationships with the people in my office, and I still talk to them today! WSP changed my life for the better, and it gave me the motivation that I needed to finish college and have aspirations afterward.
