Washington, D.C. -- The Washington, D.C., and state offices of U.S. Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) will have four interns serve in various capacities for the fall of 2019.
“Internships with the U.S. Senate provide each person with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working in the legislative branch,” said Crapo. “Our interns this fall will be tasked with assignments that help them witness firsthand how the views and needs of Idahoans are considered before Congress in the front office, the legislative office and in the press office. I look forward to having them on my team for this fall.”
Four students are interning in the Washington, D.C., office:
Samuel Hunt, a native of Rexburg, studies Business Strategy at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. With educational interests in the judiciary, as well as fiscal and monetary policy, Sam also enjoys camping, skiing and watching college football.
Bridget Swanson is also a native of Rexburg attending Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. An American Studies major, Bridget sees herself teaching American History or Government at the college level someday, and enjoys swimming, reading and exploring big cities. She previously interned in the U.S. House of Representatives for Representative John Curtis (R-Utah-03).
Samantha Foster, a native of Houston, Texas, attends Brigham Young University in Rexburg, Idaho, and is pursuing a degree in Political Science with an emphasis in Public Administration. Her policy interests include immigration, the constitution and judiciary, education and taxes. She enjoys the fine arts and swimming.
Christina Green, a native of Long Island, New York, has family roots in Idaho, and currently studies criminal justice at George Washington University. She has interests in constitutional law and education, and hopes to pursue a law degree in the future. In her free time, Christina likes to hike.
