Political Science '19

Communications Intern at the United States Senate 

Hi. My name is Kyle and I'm from Point Pleasant, NJ. I'm a Political Science major and History Minor. While participating in the Spring 2018 Maxwell-in-Washington Program, I spent my time interning on the Hill with Senator Cory A. Booker in the Communications Department.

My internship has been very rewarding. I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work in such a positive and welcoming environment. I was able to spend quality time with Senator Booker as well as escort him to interviews, press conferences, and other events. I plan to continue my work in the public sector post graduation.

I had so much fun in Washington. I learned a lot from my internship being surrounded by so many intelligent and committed people. My favorite thing about DC is the museums. My advice for incoming students is to explore the city and make connections with staffers wherever you go.
