As other interns leave, it puts those that are left in an interesting position. You have mroe work and yuo have the opportunity to really show off what you can do rather than with fellow interns. I think this is really interesting because when you are the only intern as opposed to one of a few, it is a very differerent dynamic organizationally. The tought part though is it always seems that as you come to the close of your internship, you really are getting to be part of the staff and the beat of the office. I think I have had a great opportunity this semester to learn a lot and develop new skills of looking at policy crafting in relation to what other organizations are saying about the issue so that you have real substantive context for the work your organization or Member of Congress is doing.
