“The Washington Fellowship was a great experience I will never forget. It gave me the
opportunity to live in D.C. among like-minded peers and friends while I interned at the White
House. Little did I know when I started my internship that it would turn into a job opportunity!
Now I live and work in D.C. and I would not have had this experience apart from the fellowship.”
