Interning in Washington, D.C. is about taking advantage of every opportunity and moment. Despite its small size, I found D.C. to be packed to the brim with passion and a hunger to make a difference in the world. No one wastes a second: every metro ride is an opportunity to squeeze in one more chapter of reading; each happy hour brings the possibility of meeting one more person. Spending the summer in this unique city was a blessing and a constant eye-opener. I am so thankful to Cal in the Capital for making my dream a reality.
