2020 Intern Reflection
This summer I have worked as an intern for the office of Mayor Francis Suarez from Miami, FL. Coming into the internship I knew I wanted to learn more about local government and how decisions are made at the city level. I was surprised to find out that I would be working on different projects throughout the summer, where each assignment is different from the previous and this has allowed me to go out of my comfort zone and learn about new topics and practices. I have enjoyed my work and despite the remote format I have benefitted a great deal from my relationship to my supervisor, who has offered his help and guidance.
I would recommend working at the Mayor's office for anyone looking for a variety of experiences during their summer, open to learning new skills and to work on new and interesting projects every week. The office is a very welcoming environment and you will enjoy the work you do.
