Jeez, where do I start with this one? The person you see on the right of the photo? I never would have thought that I would get as close to him as I have in these last few weeks. But through and through, he has proven to be yet another person in my internship class that has made a big difference in my experience. To the person who was there for me through and through after my break up, even when he wanted to throw stuff at me to get myself together. To the person that I couldn’t imagine this internship without getting close to. To the family I never thought I could find in ten weeks. And most importantly, to the person with the biggest heart I have the blessing of getting to know.

Whether it is becoming best friends on snapchat, having deep conversations at any given time of the day, or even just enjoying each other’s company – I am so grateful that you are a part of my life. Much like Angie, you have become my rock during this internship and I really wouldn’t have been able to get through any of it without the both of you. Allen, thank you again and again for being there for me. I hope that without a doubt, we remain friends even when you are back in California (especially since you go to Cornell anyway, we’re just a four hour drive from each other). Let’s make this last week in DC count!
