Internship: Foreign Service Institute, US Department of State in in Arlington, VA.

Notes on the first week

I learn so much every single day. That’s my most salient impression after interning for two weeks with the US State Department. Every day, from 8:15 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon, I’m gathering information on topics that I find profoundly fascinating — Africa, US diplomacy, and development.

Internship: Arlington Free Clinic

Notes on the first week

I am so glad to be back working at the Arlington Free Clinic. I had an internship here once before, two summers ago. They introduced me to medical interpretation, and I got so many great opportunities to practice it with them.
