Congressional Picnic Experience | #2

During my first weeks in the office, we – as an intern class – got the opportunity to volunteer at the annual Congressional Picnic. This was one of the coolest events I never imagined I would get the chance to experience. It seemed as though everybody involved in American politics was there. Everybody from Cabinet Secretaries to members of the House and Senate on both sides of the isle to Jared and Ivanka to Donald himself were enjoying a beautiful evening on the South Lawn. I was so excited when I got my assignment to scoop ice cream to all of the attendees. I had the opportunity to network and talk to everybody at the dessert table. Which was incredible because that’s where all of the guests were in good spirits. Watching the sun set just over the White House was one of the most beautiful sights I have ever witnessed and it was the icing on the cake to a wonderful evening of picnic food, good company, and conversation.
