Global Zero Fellow in International Policy

Global Zero | Washington, D.C.

September 17, 2016 | Your Hip Office Can’t Be As Hip As Mine Last week, I didn’t get to talk about the working space I am in, but I wanted to discuss it more fully. It sets up a really interesting dynamic that I didn’t even know was desired or existed. A company called WeWork rents out “cooperative working” offices. […]

Week 11:
Saying Goodbye

Knapp Fellow in Animal Behavior and Conservation

Sea World | Orlando, Florida

August 25, 2016 | My last week in Orlando came and went far too quickly. Even after almost three months here, I found myself not ready to leave. Every moment of this week’s camp seemed much more special and enhanced, because I knew it was the last time I might experience it. For this last week of camp, I was placed […]

Week 10:
Don’t cry for me, Argentina…

August 25, 2016 | Just as I started my first blog post, it only seems fitting that I title my last one with another Evita lyric. On August 12th, my time at the U.S. Embassy in Buenos Aires drew to a close. The end of this experience was bittersweet, and while it’s hard to come to grips with the fact […]

Week 15:
Goodbye…….For Now

Tomlinson Fellow in Representative Government

Congressional Office of David Loebsack (D-IA 2) | Washington, D.C.

August 23, 2016 | Last week was my final week as an intern with U.S. Congressman David Loebsack. This has truly been the experience of a lifetime.

Final Week

As I mentioned in my previous blog, last week ended with me needing to find a new […]

Stimson Fellow in Museum Studies

African American Museum of Iowa | Cedar Rapids, Iowa

August 21, 2016 | Hi all!

Week 9 The second week of August involved a […]

Slater Fellow in Theatrical Development

Creede Repertory Theatre | Creede, Colorado

August 16, 2016 | This morning, I drove away from Creede, Colorado.  I wasn’t driving to Alamosa to get Taco Bell or to Pagosa for an adventurous day off.  I was driving the full 9 hours, all the way back to my driveway in Ogden, Utah. It’s hard to believe that after making a home out of Creede, my […]

Academic plans

Arthur Vining Davis Fellow in Clinical Psychology

University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics | Iowa City, Iowa

August 16, 2016 | I continued my work on the functional and T1 imaging in Bipolar disorder study this week. I am making better progress than I thought I was going to. I have kind of got a groove going when going through the data.   I would have to say that academically; this week was one of my […]

Starting to Wind Down

Andrews Fellow in Nonprofit & Community Education

Project Rousseau: Hyde Park Academy | Chicago, Illinois

August 16, 2016 | Last week started off a little bit stressful. I had successfully scheduled the community service activity for the Hyde Park Academy students at the Lakeview Food Pantry. After talking with many people at Project Rousseau, finalizing the details and making sure everything was okay to move forward, I received an email from Beth informing me that the […]
