Life has a funny way of giving back what you put out. My semester in D.C. was like that, the more I did the more I got out of my experience. I never thought that I would be able to get into the graduate internship program at the World Bank; I never thought that I would do campaign strategy...

A New exploration. The main reason that drives me to participate in the UCDC program is to expose myself physically and mentally to the east coast. When I got off the plane, the breeze awakened me completely, reminding me that my journey had started! The takeaway from the orientation was that if...

I recently finished watching the seven incredible seasons of The West Wing. It’s absolutely enrapturing. But it’s a dramatic TV show meant to engage devoted audiences; it bears little resemblance to reality. At least that is what I would try tell myself as I fixated on the screen - mouth agape -...
