My name is Brianna Covaleski and I am a senior from Quakertown, PA studying International Relations and interning for Development Transformations. Working for a small government contracting firm has been a really cool experience. I'm fortunate enough to get brought on to a lot of major projects and see first hand how development contracting works. After my undergrad, I'm looking to get into government and security related work. I'm very much interested in counterterrorism and the Middle East.
Maxwell in Washington has been an amazing experience, I have been able to get a taste of living in the District as well as go to a number of events (embassies, State Department, etc) and hear from speakers of all professions. These experiences I wouldn't otherwise have had if it weren't for this program. Just being able to be in the heart of everything major going on right now has been really cool and D.C. Is unique in that sense. The food trucks are amazing too!
