So…we've reached the last blog post. Like I said before, my internship has just flown by. I’ve loved 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, and what we can do when we work together to create change. Most of the summer has been busy busy busy, but this week things have been winding down. Yesterday, after some teamwork with the other interns and staff to move some things around in the office, we had an ice cream party as a sort of goodbye event for the office interns. We had a fantastic time, and Margaret, our office manager, brought some of the most delicious ice cream toppings I have ever had. We all sat in the conference room, eating ice cream and looking back at the summer, talking about what we got out of our internships. I’m really going to miss all the AAPD staff – I think the office environment here is a unique one, and it really does feel like a family. This morning, my supervisor Jenifer came into the office with amazing news – S. 3304, which would drastically improve technology and video accessibility, passed the Senate late last night!! Jenifer has been working on this bill for years, and I’m so excited it finally passed. What a perfect way to end my internship. It’s been such an honor to work at AAPD this summer, and I feel so lucky to have had this amazing internship opportunity. It’s been wonderful getting to know all of you. I definitely plan to stay in touch with everyone here, and I hope many of the interns will do the same!
