Before my internship, I had only been to Lansing a couple of times for
school field trips or East Lansing to visit friends at MSU. My internship has
opened my eyes to the historic wonders of the Capitol. It has been great to
spend my lunches wandering around, admiring the elaborate memorials
and elegant landmarks. There are also plenty of family-owned eateries that
add to the city’s charm. Overall, I have seen how charming and small the
Capitol area can seem, despite its size. In the future, I may return to work at
the MDEQ, but I would most likely reside outside of the city.
