Internship in the US Senate

Johanna (History and Political Science, 2014) had an internship this summer in Senator John Kerry's office in Washington, D.C. She expected to be sorting mail and making copies, but things turned out much better than that.  Johanna was charged with keeping track of hearings and briefings and ended up attending quite a few Senate Foreign Relations Committee meetings, especially those at which Ambassadors were nominated.  She also got to meet and greet various visiting diplomats from foreign countries and fact checked one of the Senator's important speeches on the environment.
