“Every week there’s something new, something that will help my future wherever it may lead. Everything from meeting TFAS alumni to hearing what grad school recruiters are looking for has helped me understand what I want to do with my future. I have made several professional contacts through these events and have already started to reach out to them. There is no way I could have been able to interact with this variety of people just going through the summer with a normal D.C. internship.”
