Two Weeks To Go

Wednesday as work continued I sent in what I hope to be the final version of the DOT Resource Guide for Hiring the Disabled to Dr, Walker. As the week continued I started trying to set up meetings with people throughout my office to continue my networking and make more connections before I leave. Next Tuesday is the trip to the White House for interns with disabilities. I am excited to see what kind of events take place. Next week I also have a meeting with Sara Mahoney to see about getting on the WRP database as I am trying to be back in Washington DC again next summer.

The week ended with a visit to the Newseum, my favorite museum in Washington. I love to go there because they change the exhibits so often that you never have to worry about not having something new to see. This time I found the Katrina exhibit very interesting as well as the presidential picture section. Dinner at the Capitol Grill was the best meal I have had all summer. It was a great time, getting everyone together for an end of the summer event like this. I plan on ending these last two weeks of my internship strong and leaving a good impression for both myself and AAPD with the hope of possibly returning next summer.
