DC Semester Q and A
Gracie Rowe with Senator Johnny Isakson

Gracie Rowe
Spring 2016

The DC Semester helped me solidify my career goals.

Brief bio:

I am a fourth year student at the University of Georgia majoring in Agricultural Communication. Currently, I work as a student intern for the Washington Semester Program and as a part of the tour staff for the Southern Brewing Company here in Athens.

Expected graduation:

May 2018

Degree objective:

Agricultural Communication

Why I went:

I was chosen to represent Georgia 4-H in a historic internship for the Georgia senior senator.

Favorite spot to visit:

Eastern Market. I loved walking around the market during the spring and grabbing fresh produce with some of the other girls from the house.

Most memorable day:

My most memorable day was when Senator Isakson released his Veterans First Act legislation. The press conference was the high point because I got to see all that my office had been working toward finally come to fruition.

Why I'm glad I went:

I learned about the inner-workings of the government, how many people it takes to smoothly operate a congressional office, and the incredible array of politics any one issue involves. I also met wonderful people and have stayed in contact with many of them.

Where I interned:

Office of Senator Johnny Isakson
