As a general intern at the World Affairs Council of Dallas/ Fort Worth I have been able to gain knowledge and experience about the work that is required to host events that allow for the public to be more informed on international affairs and events.
I have had the privilege to work with a great staff of people on various tasks and assignments, which has allowed me to learn about the hard work that each department does to promote the Council’s mission of educating and engaging the local community in national and international affairs. I look forward to assisting at the events that are hosted by the Council and being able to learn more about the topics presented by the speakers at these events.
As an International Political Economy major at The University of Texas at Dallas, I am able to further expand my knowledge on national and international events in the world while gaining new knowledge every day that I am interning at the Council. I have also been able to acquire skills and experience from working in a professional environment which I know will be useful for my career. I hope to have the best experience that I possibly can during my internship at the Council.
