Economics '18

Congressional Intern at the United States House of Representatives


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!
