In short, this picture does an excellent job summing up my internship. All told, almost 50 other students work alongside me at the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program. Although not overtly shown in this picture, the 50 of us are a tight-knit group. When the work gets tough — with quickly approaching deadlines or difficult assignments — we are each other’s support system. At the end of the summer, I won’t remember each individual task I had to complete or email I had to send; however, I will remember the close bonds forged during this internship. This photo sums up my summer experience so well because the people I worked with, not the work itself, is what made this job so special.
