I have appreciated living in this city not only for infinite opportunities that it has to offer, but also for how it has shaped me as a person and a professional. Living and interning in DC has given me a sneak preview of what it will be like to enter the working world. Up until this semester, my past work experience consisted of working at small, family owned businesses. My internship has given me valuable insight for what it takes to function in a larger working environment and to operate among various departments and teams working towards different objectives. Overall, my time in DC has helped prepare me for the transition that I will make after I graduate this May. I am so grateful to have had this experience and for the people and places that I have met along the way.
