Ah the glamorous life of an intern. Being a born and bred Washingtonian, I spent many a summer working long hours for no pay doing important things like sorting the mail and cleaning the mold out of the office fridge. I interned for NPR and got to crawl under desks and switch radio wires. I interned for the Belgian government and wrote a very long report about international drainage systems, and I interned for The Kennedy Center and really honed my stalking skills.
I don’t know if the people I interned for liked me or not, but I can honestly say that my interns at Washington Life are absolutely fantastic. They work really hard, many have become very good friends and constant sources of entertainment, and all brought something unique and positive to the work place. Ali, who is currently one of my interns, has been with us for a year in May and has done a super fantastic job. She stays late into the night with us on deadline, finds typos that our bleary eyes are too tired to see and knows my job inside and out. Which is why we offered her a full time job today!
Ali graduates from GW this May and I’m thrilled that she will be joining the staff she is already very much a part of.
