When meeting President Obama is part of the job

I would not have had these opportunities if I was at another university.

As a sophomore, I interned at the Democratic National Committee. Without AU, this experience would not have been possible and I am extremely thankful. The past intern in my department was the President of AU College Democrats and our boss was also an AU Alum! While at the DNC, I had the privilege to meet President Obama, Secretary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Michelle Obama. I would not have had these opportunities if I was at another university.
