Last Post

So… the last blog post. My internship has just flown by. It was a great experience exploring D.C. and getting to know the disability community this summer. I think my eyes have been opened to the strength and unity of our extremely diverse community. Most of the summer has been busy with work and some fantastic AAPD event, but this week things have been winding down. I have made some great contacts and even better friends in my stay and Washington D.C. I wish I could stay longer and keep working at the US Access Board but there is always next summer. This last week has been filled with work and goodbyes and goodbye parties. I did do some work which I didn’t mind one bit because it’s always been fun for me to work. I ran my last meeting and finished setting up the server for the inventory software that the office will use to keep track of all computers and software. I would like to thank AAPD for providing the housing that I stayed and also the placement, which was spectacular. Thanks to every one for making my stay in Washington D.C. and incredible experience that I will never forget.
