DC Semester Q and A

Caroline Hope Daniel
Spring 2011

"When you put yourself in a stressful and unfamiliar environment, you will discover who you really are and what you really want in life. When you discover that, every hardship you went through was worth it."

Brief bio:

I am a News Producer with expertise in journalism.
Over the past year, I have worked with WJBF News Channel 6 within the television industry.
I moved to Augusta after graduating from the University of Georgia in May 2012. I have an A.B.J. in Digital and Broadcast Journalism from the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication as well as a minor in Spanish. I was the recipient of UGA’s Amazing Students award and was featured in an article in the Georgia Association of Broadcasters

Expected graduation:

May 2012

Degree objective:

ABJ Digital Broadcast Journalism

Why I went:

I chose to spend a semester in D.C. because I was looking for a way to challenge and push myself to be the best ‘me’ I could be. I also wanted a different internship experience. I knew that in order to get that exceptional experience, I’d have to leave my small world of Athens, GA.

Favorite spot to visit:

My favorite spot in Washington, D.C. is the Smithsonian National Zoo and the U.S. Botanical Gardens.

Most memorable day:

My most memorable day in Washington, D.C. was when I got to volunteer at the National Prayer Breakfast and hear President Obama speak. Mark Kelly, the husband of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, also gave an inspirational speech about the shooting that injured his wife a few years ago.

Why I'm glad I went:

Interning on Capitol Hill was definitely an eye-opening experience. I learned that I did not want to go into politics; I learned how to be tough and stand on my own two feet; more importantly, though, I learned more about myself and what I wanted to do with my life

Where I interned:

Office of Congressman Jack Kingston
