Hi! My name is Richard Nigro from Buffalo, NY studying Economics and interning on the Hill for Congressman Brian Higgins. I really enjoy my internship because I have the opportunity to perform legislative research on a wide range of issue areas. Working on the Hill has given me access to a large number of professionals to expand my network and learn about possible career paths I had not considered otherwise. In the future, I plan on earning my Master's in Public Health and working in the healthcare policy field.
Maxwell in Washington has been a fantastic experience. I've met so many people through my classes and internship, and truly enjoy living in DC. I look forward to returning to the District after graduation!
