I just finished my last day of work at the National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities. While I was pretty bored with the tasks I was given at the beginning, I left doing work that kept me challenged and busy. I left NASUAD at a busy time since their conference is coming up next month. I think it would be a cool experience to attend the conference. Though, I also felt that a 6-week internship was a good amount of time. It was long enough for me to understand the type of work done at NASUAD and to gain skills from completing unique projects.
When I am going to be asked what my favorite part of the internship was, it is going to be the people I have met. In my program and at my office, I have met so many genuine, interesting people that have helped me grow this summer. I am sad that I have to leave DC, but I know that I am going to stay in touch with everyone.
Furthermore, I also loved living in DC, specifically at GW. GW has the perfect location since it is close to the mall and near Georgetown. There has been so much to see and do in the nation’s capital. I will miss everything that DC has to offer. I loved living in DC so much that I have started to consider doing the Michigan in Washington program so I can come back to DC to study and intern.
