7. A UF STUDENT REPORTS ON HER INTERNSHIP AT THE WASHINGTON CENTER: I
thought you would
enjoy an e-mail I received from one of our UF students at the TWC this
<<I am starting my fourth week interning through The Washington Center in
Washington, DC. Now that I am snowed in and have a few minutes to write, I
thought I'd let you all know how things are going. I am in TWC's Nonprofit
Leaders program and I am interning at a national children's literacy
organization. I am working with the Community Development team writing
grant proposals, working on Congressional outreach projects, and using
awarded grant money to implement a 20,000 book distribution. The work
environment is fantastic...young, energetic, and dedicated to a wonderful
I am absolutely in love with Washington, DC. The city's fast pace, culture,
sophistication, and intellectual atmosphere are exactly what I was looking
for. DC law schools will be at the top of my list when I apply for
admittance Fall 2004.
I am taking advantage of every moment...visiting museums, monuments,
lectures, and special events. I live in Alexandria, VA and have enjoyed Old
Town, as well. My apartment is beautiful and I lucked out with 3 great
roommates. I have even adjusted to the weather. This is quite the winter I
picked to come up here! >>
