The DC Semester helped me solidify my career goals.
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.
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.
