"I think the most important skill I learned however was how to network with people and make important professional connections."

"My Praxis III helped me to bring to life some of the theories and ideas that I learned about congress and politics in the classroom. The idea of campaigning and the way congress works was foreign to me until I actually worked in that world.

"The most interesting part for me was the opportunity to try my hand at a bunch of different aspects of campaigning. I worked on everything from fundraising to press to field operations. I am most proud of my ability to transition smoothly from working in one area of the campaign to another."
