My Spring Internship at D.C. Witness

During my time interning for D.C. Witness, I was able to gain clarity about what I want my future career to be while I developed important and tactile skills that I would not have learned otherwise.

I feel that my ability to successfully write for news has greatly increased, and I have developed a more critical eye for distinguishing the facts and what’s important from everything else.

Along with this, I realized how much I enjoy being in the courtroom and seeing the law in practice. I always thought the criminal justice system was interesting, but, over the past few months, I have developed new perspectives and passions that I know will benefit me in my next endeavors.
