Lindsey Malcom, WMP 2011
I chose the Washington Mentorship Program because it gave me the opportunity to obtain a set of work skills that supplied a solid foundation for my future undergraduate and professional ambitions. As a first semester student, I interned on Capitol Hill for Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal. Since having completed the program, I have interned with the Connecticut Secretary of the State's Office, interned and promoted as a personal assistant for an attorney at law, and am currently the Executive Social Media Intern for DC Life Magazine. The Washington Mentorship Program was unlike any other experience that could have been offered to me, and commenced my future career path much earlier than I ever anticipated.
