The final days of the internship have arrived, and they are every bit as bittersweet as I imagined they would be.

8 weeks of the internship behind us. I’m ready to go home, but I am not ready to leave behind the wonderful people I’ve met here.

Last week was much different from the previous weeks of the internship, as I spent two full days out of the office to attend the excellent intern-led tours of Capitol Hill and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.

Last week, work was filled with phone interviews, emails, and profile writing as usual, but the four-day weekend due to the Fourth of July left ample time for adventures.

Reaching the halfway point of my time in DC feels bittersweet… and also a bit terrifying. In five weeks, I’ll head home to enjoy a couple more weeks of summer before I ship myself off to Chile for a ten-day data science school and then start my final year of undergrad.

Two years ago I attended the APS Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP). A data scientist gave a fantastic plenary talk about her path from earning a PhD in Astrophysics to working in the tech industry.

This week I am feeling very spoiled by this internship. On Thursday evening, we went on an amazing dinner cruise. On the boat, we enjoyed a beautiful view of DC, a three-course meal, drinks, and dancing.

This week has been full of work, yoga, and fun. Keeping myself busy has definitely made the time go by very fast.

My first week in DC has flown by! I am the APS Career Programs Intern this summer, and I am working with Crystal Bailey to create a deck of playing cards that features successful women in different physics careers.

I am excited to become a part of this community and to hopefully revive the SPS chapter at my
university!
