Spending a semester in Washington D.C. was the best thing I have done for both my personal and professional development. It was the cornerstone of my future, and I can't wait to build up from here!
I am an International Affairs and Romance Languages major and a minor in Women’s Studies. I interned as the SPIA Military and Foreign Affairs Fellow in the Office of Senator Saxby Chambliss during the Fall 2012 Semester.
International Affairs, Romance Languages
Why I went:
It is great to learn theory from books and in a classroom, but there is something to be said for seeing this theory in action on the Hill. I was looking for something different—a chance to use what I had learned.
Favorite spot to visit:
Inside the Capitol building—it’s pretty cool to have an all-access pass to such an amazing and powerful place.
Most memorable day:
The day I finally made it to Mount Vernon on my bike!
Why I'm glad I went:
The Washington Semester Program is probably the best thing I have done for my career. I didn’t even know where to begin before I went. I came back with an idea of where I wanted to go, and an even better one of how to get there. I think the program will prove invaluable to both my personal and professional development. Not to mention making some of the best connections and people yet- my friends from the program!
