Internships and Academic Seminars
Te Washington Center
2009 Scholarship Yearbook
Student Quotes

“Te time I spent in Washington, D.C. is no doubt one
o the most relevant experiences because it allowed me to
grow as a person and to become more competent in my
proessional eld. I developed abilities and values that

enorced my commitment to keep working to improve our

society and to collaborate in reaching a more promising
uture or those, such as me, that dream o a better uture or
our people.”

Adriana Cardena-Rey, Uniersidad del Rosario
Interned at the U.S. Small Business Administration,
GE Foundation Scholar.

“I have received tremendous legal experience, both
through my internship and the activities organized
by Te Washington Center. I worked with extremely
knowledgeable attorneys on such issues as taxes, bankruptcy
and eminent domain. Also, because I attended court
procedures on a regular basis, I was able to amiliarize mysel
with the Washington, D.C. court system and meet a lot
o judges serving on the bench. Tis valuable experience
allowed me to achieve a much better understanding o my
own career goals and aspirations.”

Ekaterina Zabaluea, Cleeland-Marshall College o Law
Interned at the Oce o the Attorney General or the
District o Columbia, Cleveland Foundation Scholar.

“At Save the Children, my responsibilities included
assisting in the planning and organizing o the 4th Annual
Arican International Conerence on Early Childhood
Development. My work load was large but the challenge
was the demand that senior sta members put on my critical
thinking and decisiveness. My intensive research o child
poverty issues, conicts, and women’s rights is what caused
me to want to become more involved in advocacy. I grew to
admire those who advocate or the helpless and inspired me
to do the same.”

Samantha Paige Dais, Caliornia Uniersity o Pennsylvania
Interned at Save the Children, New York Lie Foundation

“As a ederal global warming intern, I have had the
opportunity to attend hearings on Te Hill, write act
sheets, attend lobby meetings, contribute to a report, and
work to help pass the American Clean Energy and Security
Act in the House o Representatives. Tis summer was an
exciting time to be interning in the environmental eld as
historic legislation was being debated in the House to set
a limit on carbon emissions. I gained valuable experience
working on the campaign to pass the bill, and was able to see
rst-hand how the legislative process works.”

Janna Rosenthal, Uniersity o Florida
Interned at Environment America, Motorola Foundation

“Te Córdova & Fernós Internship Program at Te
Washington Center has been one o the most important and
exciting experiences I’ve ever had. Washington, D.C., work,
the people, everything combines to ensure you have the
experience o a lietime. With the Oce o the Governor o
Puerto Rico (PRFAA), I have been given the opportunity to
develop mysel in many areas that I never thought I would.
I worked with ederal proposals, grants, legal contracts,
legislative aairs, communications, and even I. I also had
one o the best law courses ever, Our Living Constitution,
with Proessor Janice E. Garlitz. I had the opportunity to
meet and share with a lot o people including our Governor,

Luis Fortuño.”
Xiomara E. Ramírez, Uniersity o Puerto Rico
Interned at the Puerto Rico Federal Aairs Administration,
Univision Scholar.
