DC Semester Q and A

Emily K Prince
Spring 2010

WSP completely changed the trajectory of my life post-graduation. The friends I made became a family and the professional connections have been priceless as I've grown my career.

Brief bio:

I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia where I graduated from the Paideia School in 2006. I began attending UGA that Fall, eventually majoring in Political Science and Spanish. While participating in the Washington Semester Program during my senior year I was offered a position on the hill working for then Senator Blanche Lincoln as a Constituent Relations Specialist. After losing the election I joined the Governmental Affairs team of Entergy Services.

Expected graduation:

May 2010

Degree objective:

Political Science, Spanish

Why I went:

I have always been an avid political follower and interested in policy development. DC is the perfect intersection of both. Plus what better way to get a leg up in the job market than to get a four month jump on the competition.

Favorite spot to visit:

Lola’s on Barracks Row.

Most memorable day:

The day healthcare reform finally passed in the House of Representatives. Several of us spent the weekend in the gallery and were there to witness the making of history.

Why I'm glad I went:

WSP completely changed the trajectory of my life post-graduation. The friends I made became a family and the professional connections have been priceless as I’ve grown my career.

Where I interned:

Office of Senator Blanche Lincoln
