“My time spent in Washington, D.C., has been more than I could have ever imagined. I had a great internship at the Washington Center. I took a challenging class, met fantastic people and led a truly independent life. All of this helped me to not only learn more about myself as a person but also helped to examine my interests and skills to really focus on what I want to do the rest of my life."
