What's It Like to Intern in India? Ask a UVA student

Genevieve Agar – March 22nd, 2017

My name is Heather Thompson, and I am a third-year student in the School of Arts and Sciences. I'm doubling in Foreign Affairs and Economics, and I'll be graduating this spring. My primary involvement at UVA is definitely rugby. I started playing my first year and absolutely love it. Now I'm also match secretary for the rugby team. I also am in Phi Alpha Delta (the pre-law fraternity), and volunteer with Campus Kitchen. Outside of school, I work for the Papers of George Washington and at Splendora's downtown.
