Richmond student, Aleksander Czarski, currently studying BA in International Relations, is doing an internship this summer in Washington, DC with Congresswoman  Tulsi Gabbard, a candidate for the President of the United States who also serves as a Major in the Army National Guard.

Aleksander said about his internship role:

“One of the long-term tasks assigned to me is to come up with any project proposal over the summer and turn it into a policy. At the end of my internship, I will have the opportunity to present this policy to Tulsi Gabbard who, if she likes it, will submit it to the House floor for a vote. This means that the project that I worked on in Research Methods and Practices, “Increasing food sovereignty of Native Hawaiians”, has the potential to become a reality. This is a great opportunity for me and the experience is truly impactful.”
