"When I heared about The French American Fund Congressional Fellowship Program I was really motivated to enroll. I had experienced previous internships in the field of exchanges and diplomacy and I was interested into American politics. The French American Fund program met my expectations. This Paris-based institution provided the kind of unique experience I was looking for, being a Congressional Fellow on Capitol Hill while attending classes at The Washington Center. I was honored and grateful to be their first student ever to be sent to Washington for a four months legislative assignment !
Upon my arrival to the Washington Center last January 2016, our instructors suggested we enjoy every moment and opportunity made available to students. This four months program would end before we would realize the full range of possibilities offered in this great city.
For students interested into public actions, international relations and politics, Washington is a whirlwind of activities, networks and initiatives related to these issues. The intensive 15 weeks program studies at The Washington Center prepares and places us as young professionals and tomorrow's leaders.
I experienced doing research for the Committee on Foreign Affairs and North Africa to prepare hearings.
Thanks to The French American Fund, I have had the chance to be part of this program that represented a decisive turning point in my career and in my life."
