Internship Experience: Georgia State Capitol
(VSU News) – Valdosta State University’s Haneefah Saleem spent the first three months of 2018 working directly with state senators and representatives at the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta, trading in lectures and homework for constituent issues and research on legislation that shapes government policy.
Saleem, a political science major from Savannah, Georgia, was chosen to work full time as an intern in the governor’s floor leaders office during the 2018 legislative session, which kicked off on Jan. 8.
“I’ve learned so much from my time at the Capitol,” said Saleem. “You experience so many different things and so many perspectives. You get to speak directly with the representatives and senators. You learn so much, and you make great connections.”
