Internship: Sexual Assault Resource Agency and Planned Parenthood

Notes on the first week

Taking on one new job is stressful to begin with, but within the first week of work I had to orient myself to both Planned Parenthood and the Sexual Assault Resource Agency (SARA). I realized quickly, however, that I have a have a lot in common with the compassionate, upbeat, empathetic, and creative women I’m working with this summer.

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.
