Why did you apply to be coordinator?

I applied to be the PIW coordinator because I wanted to create an immersive and engaging summer experience for my peers who will spend their summer in D.C. I hope to help students feel free to engage their interests and passions while also having fun!

What are you looking forward to bringing to the program this summer?

I am looking forward to cultivating a community where all students feel included and excited for PIW events. There is something for everyone and I really want to ensure that these events are something students look forward to, rather than just something else added to their already busy schedules. 

Why should students participate in PIW this summer?

This year, PIW will be offering a wide-variety of events for students with any academic interests. These events are FREE, incredible opportunities to meet alumni and other professionals and learn more about their careers! PIW also includes a lot of different social activities and local trips to help students relax and experience all D.C. has to offer!
