June 2017 - August 2017 Hartford, CT
“I particularly liked working in constituent services; you get to hear people's problems and attempt to solve them using the resources of the state, which can feel very meaningful especially when these problems are having an extremely big impact on their lives. For instance, one person called in to talk about how their landlord wasn't fixing their apartment shower in an attempt to force them out and we were able to get Hartford Housing Authorities involved. During my time at the capital, I answered phones, letters, and emails, as well as collected survey information. It was also interesting being in the place where so many important decisions happen: I got to meet the governor, sit in on committee meetings, and generally learn a lot about the Connecticut state government. ”
