Research Abstract: This video summarizes my experience as a Bowdoin Public Service Fellow at the U.S. Department of State in the Bureau of Legislative Affairs. Even in a virtual setting, my experience was invaluable. I had the opportunity to draft policy memos, legislative strategy proposals, and conduct background research for hearings with Department witnesses. I would like to thank the Hearst Foundation for their generous donation and continued support of Bowdoin Public Service. Additionally, I would like to express my gratitude to Sarah Chingos, the director of this initiative, and Ambassador Thomas Pickering, who has been an encouraging and inspirational mentor to me and the rest of the Fellows.
