What was the best part of your experience?

The best part of my experience was attending different hearings and events and getting to see the action of our nation's lawmakers up close and personal. It was surreal to see how things actually get done in our nation's capital and to see all of these people who you see on television in person. You are really able to tell a lot about a person's personality by seeing them up close. Being able to stand in congressional office buildings and take in the history and magic of those buildings is a truly fantastic experience.

How did this experience impact you academically?

This experience really refined my note taking skills. Attending congressional hearings is a trial by fire in terms of note taking. You do not have a powerpoint to read or the comfort of knowing that the powerpoint will be posted online after class. You need to jot down all the relevant information and are powerless to ask someone to slow down or go back like you could in class. I am a much better note taker now.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

This job gave me some real world experience in the field of public policy which is something I would like to work on one day. I got to learn a lot and experience what some of those jobs would look like and feel like if I attain one someday. Moreover, I got to meet some fantastic people that are more than willing to give me advice or a helping hand down the road.
