Gotta Intern abroad

In Spring 2014, I intend to intern at Edinburgh Scotland with a Member of Scottish Parliament. This experience is not a trip to find myself, rather it is the stepping stone to achieve my goal of working in foreign policy and international affairs as a politician. As the world becomes more globalized and interconnected, the act of establishing stronger relationships with other nations becomes a necessity for success.
Scotland is a unique paradox: an independent state unified in a larger state embracing new laws and old traditions. I believe by interning with at the Scottish Parliament, I will academically and culturally gain new perspectives about current transatlantic relationships, economic powers, and much more. Furthermore, this internship experience is about gaining skills. I am not a good public speaker as indicated by my need to read lines in the movie; however, this internship requires me to regularly debate. I will develop skills and become a better politician for I will have to improvise on cases, and argue for the Member of the Scottish Parliament I work with.
