She spent 12 weeks in Washington D.C. and recently spoke of her experience there: "I've had the privilege of witnessing democracy in action on the Hill. From researching policy matters to assisting with constituent communications, I’ve had invaluable exposure to the legislative process. Working in such a fast-paced and dynamic environment has been so rewarding. The passion and commitment displayed by my fellow interns, staffers and our elected officials will forever shape my understanding of public service!"
