Regional and Security Studies Intern

May 2018 - August 2018 Honolulu, HI
“Everyone that I worked around was really supportive and encouraged me to get involved with the work I wanted to do. They also provided a lot of professional development advice to me as a rising senior. I also came out of the internship with mentors who still check in on and advise me as I enter the job force. Also, you get experience in research, teaching, and learning about the military.”
