Jessica Jin Suh
I am currently a senior at the University of Georgia studying Political Science and International Affairs. In addition to classes I tutor Italian through the Rankin Smith Student-Athlete Center and Milledge Hall on campus, and I am a student worker for the Washington Semester Program.
B.A. Political Science, B.A. International Affairs
Why I went:
I wanted to gain first hand experience in a career field that I am interested in pursuing before I graduate from college. The Washington Semester Program provided me with the opportunity to gain that work experience while taking classes and forging close friendships.
Favorite spot to visit:
I absolutely loved going to the Jefferson Memorial on a sunny day, riding bikes around.
Most memorable day:
It is difficult to pick just one! Touring the West Wing and the White House Garden were pretty incredible. I also went to a rally, where I shook hands with Vice President Joe Biden; that was definitely a highlight.
Why I'm glad I went:
Through my time in the Washington Semester Program I was able to form a clearer idea of what I want to do after graduation while forming connections, both professionally and personally. I don’t know that I would have gained a similar experience from any other program.
