"My internship with a liberal congressman during the summer brought me into contact with many
outraged conservatives, which sparked my interest in the political Right. At PRA, I am
gaining a greater understanding of the individual groups within the conservative movement, as
well as a more insightful view of the ideologies that comprise it. I enjoy escaping from the
bubble of campus life twice a week and am both excited and frightened by the prospect of graduating

"The commute from Waltham to Somerville is a long one, but it’s worth it when interning at PRA.
Whether I am researching independently, talking with a staff member, or reading office email, I am
always learning something new about this country and the complexities of its political Right. I have
never been more critical of what I read, see, or hear, as working at PRA has taught me the many ways
in which exaggeration and generalization, no matter how enticing, can not only harm your opponents
cause, but your own. This has proven to be the most valuable aspect of working at PRA, and it's a
lesson that will benefit me and my cause – whatever it is – in the future."
