I think this internship has been influential to me in many ways. I really enjoyed learning about all the different aspects of politics. I think that this internship has showed me that I do want to be involved in politics at some level, because I have seen how important the decisions being made are to so many people. It was sometimes hard to not get disenfranchised with the political system, just because I disagreed with so many things that were happening in the legislature, but I think that is why it is important that I stay engaged. While I don’t want to run for office, I liked being part of the support team of the legislator. So much important work gets done by the people in the office and I think that they have a lot of influence on what happens, which is something I think is really cool.
