Think New Mexico
October 20, 2010
I was an intern with Think New Mexico during the summer of 2010. More than anything, the internship introduced me to the intricate political environment of New Mexico. Through researching potential initiatives and being involved in everything from helping to compose letters to the editor to sitting in on relevant Legislative Committee meetings, I learned about the government process in a very realistic setting that could never be emulated in a classroom. Before the internship, I had very little knowledge of politics in NM, however, afterwards I felt on even footing (well, at least one step closer) to my parents who have been involved in state politics for twenty five years. TNM's internship actually made interns feel needed by fostering an inclusive and positive office environment. I would highly recommend TNM's internship to others interested in non-profit and political work in NM!
