Hi, my name is Terry Sun and I am from Taiwan double majoring in International Relations and Political Science. During my time here, I interned for Near East South Asia (NESA) Center for Strategic Studies at National Defense University. I particularly enjoyed doing my internship because it opened up so many opportunities for me and I was able to attend various academic discussions as well as engage with participants from various backgrounds. I have participated in a number of seminars hosted by NESA Center where I actually got to talk to and become friends with come of the participants. After graduating from Syracuse University, I would like to work in governmental institutions and consider pursuing my Masters degree.
DC has opened many doors for me by giving me multiple opportunities to network and meet new people. What I also really liked about DC was the variety of events and restaurants that I could frequent -- DC is a young city full of fun activities to do!
If you ever consider doing the Maxwell in DC program, I would advise that you start your internship application early and use an EXCEL spreadsheet to keep you organized.
