Julia Rabon Martin
I interned with the Republican National Committee’s Political Department during my Washington Semester in Spring of 2016. During my internship I mastered cutting-edge campaign technology through the Republican Leadership Initiative, acquired invaluable leadership skills as intern for communications and policy development and I worked with Political team to build a nation-wide, dedicated, volunteer network.
Why I went:
I chose to spend a semester in DC because I was searching for direction in my career. Public policy is my passion and I am so grateful for my experience in DC.
Favorite spot to visit:
My favorite spot in DC is Chinatown. There are so many cool restaurants and museums.
Most memorable day:
My most memorable day would be when the RNC took me to the Conservative Political Action Conference where I met Buzz Aldrin!
Why I'm glad I went:
My semester in DC was by far the most fun, most academically stimulating, and most rewarding semester in college. I cannot imagine my time in college without the friends and memories I made in DC.
