My fellowship experience
"My fellowship allowed me to identify my priorities in a workplace environment, realize my own role in such an environment and evaluate the results to determine if they are desired, appropriate and beneficial to my career."

Aims of the Fellowship
My Cornell Fellowship in Representative Government was conducted with the Office of U.S. Senator Tom Harkin. I spent most of my fellowship in Senator Harkin's personal office in D.C.; however I also gained experience in the Senator's Des Moines office and the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions subcommittee office. I attended briefings for legislative assistants, subsequently summarizing and reporting on the details, and spent time collecting data on varying subjects for staff persons.
