Major:  International Relations, Economics

My fellowship experience
"Probably the most important and valuable skill I gained from this fellowship was adjusting to and accepting unexpected changes in my work or surroundings.”

Fellowship
Anderson Fellow in Public Affairs

Site
National Association of Chain Drug Stores
Washington, DC

Aims of the Fellowship
I primarily worked in two departments: Marketing, Communications and Media Relations, and Human Resources.  Oddly enough I had started the fellowship process expecting to work at the National Restaurant Association.  After Steve Anderson changed jobs to become the CEO and president of NACDS, it was planned that I would work in the Government Affairs department.  My supervisor promptly resigned a week after my arrival in Washington, DC. In the Marketing, Communications and Media relations department, I was given many projects which ranged from research, to writing press releases, to proofreading the Industry Profile and the Annual Report.
