Do you have an unfilled promise you made to yourself while in college? During my undergraduate career, I always wanted to take on an internship at the Nation’s Capitol. However, just like most plans other opportunities become more readily available and change the trajectory of your path. As I am finishing up my graduate program at Texas A&M, I am pleased to have taken on the opportunity to intern on the Hill. Every new experience comes with untapped knowledge and skills that can be acquired. Honing on past internship and work experiences from my undergrad has given me the ability to expand my role as an intern on the Hill to get the most out of my time. There is a self-fulfilling gratitude that comes from seeking a past opportunity that you let slip through your fingertips before. I encourage everyone who reads this to look back on the experiences you have always wanted to do and find a way to make them happen. What is the one commitment you wish you would have taken advantage of while in college?
