My name is Felippa Amanta, a third year Berkeley student majoring in Sociology with a minor in Public Policy. I’m really excited for my fall internship in Washington, DC, where I hope to intern at the Department of Education. It really fits my passion in education and public service. I also look forward to meeting exceptional people in DC and learning from them, through classes, seminars, and other opportunities. I can learn about politics in DC first-hand from people directly involved in it. I believe that this experience will help me in my research on education policies. Thank you, Matsui Center, for giving me a chance to fully enjoy Washington, DC with the fellowship!
