What types of things did you work on in your internship?

I was responsible for creating content for our social media platforms (LinkedIn, Instagram, and Twitter). In addition to handling social media marketing, I also wrote and edited blogs and newsletters focused on socioeconomic inequality. I also handled various administrative duties and tasks.

What was your favorite part of the experience and/or what recommendations you have for future interns?

My favorite part about spending my summer in D.C. was the people that I met while at the Washington Center. Receiving the opportunity to live and work with people from across the world was a truly unique experience that I’ll never forget. I was surprised by the sheer amount of diversity that the Washington Center had. I was able to meet people from all over the world, and now not only have lifelong friends all around, but I also have a place to stay if I ever decide to visit France or the Virgin Islands!
