YOU Could be the Next White House Intern:

You should apply to be a White House Intern.  I learned so much from the program and made great friends.  I can’t praise the program enough!  The White House Internship Program, “provides a unique opportunity to gain valuable professional experience and build leadership skills. This hands-on program is designed to mentor and cultivate today’s young leaders, strengthen their understanding of the Executive Office and prepare them for future public service opportunities.”  The application for the Fall 2012 is due April 1, 2012.  I’d be happy to read over your essays (I’ve helped people in the past and had a very good acceptance rate).  Send essay or questions to

Good luck!
