“Attending House and Senate hearings, learning about the history of the nation’s capital and staffing a meeting with the Hong Kong Commissioner for Economic and Trade Affairs have been just a few of the unforgettable moments I’ve enjoyed here. I’ve had the privilege to see the legislative process from the inside, and met fascinating people who I would not have otherwise been fortunate enough to meet; the entire experience has been invaluable.”
