Intern at Asia Policy Point


My name is Derek. I am from Wuhu, China, studying International Relations, with a minor in Information Management and Technology. This semester, I am interning at Asia Policy Point. One thing cool about my Internship is that we have many opportunities to attend many interesting events. In terms of future goals, I want to work in a field that combines International Relations and Data Science.

The Maxwell-in-DC program has helped me to better understand what the real DC looks like. It is an exciting experience to talk to experts and learn from them. My favorite part about DC is that you can enjoy various kinds of food, way better than Syracuse, in my opinion.

My advice for incoming students: Get enough sleep!
