It's been a while since I last blogged, during which I finished up my study abroad experience, worked in Massachusetts for the summer, & started my senior year at Saint Mike's. What a year!
Study abroad was an amazing experience, and honestly it was a little bit of a rough transition to come home. I missed (and still do miss) Dublin & Ireland & Europe, but it has also been so nice to see friends and family again.
This summer I was so busy, working two internships and starting a research project with a professor. I interned for U.S. Congressman Joe Kennedy III and for the Massachusetts Democratic Party, both of which were amazing experiences. I'm interested in one day working in politics, so it was really cool to learn some of what goes on behind the scenes. I also met some really awesome students my age who are interested in politics, which is kind of rare. It was awesome to make some friends who are really passionate about politics, just like me.
