Spelman Student Taylor Brigman Interns on Capitol HillTaylor Brigman, C'2026, a sophomore political science major with a minor in economics on the pre-law track at Spelman, spent her winter break on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. The Alexandria, Virginia native said her internship with U.S. Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) was transformative. "I had the privilege of delving into the inner workings of the legislative process and gaining a firsthand understanding of the efforts and dedication that go into policymaking," Brigman added. Working alongside Senator Kaine’s team, I witnessed the passion and commitment driving every decision on Capitol Hill.  The experience has deepened my appreciation for the complexities of public service and the tireless work undertaken to impact our nation positively," she said. 

According to the Senate employment office website, "Senate internships, fellowships, and clerkships offer an excellent opportunity for students and recent graduates to gain exposure to the daily operations of a Senate office, develop professional skills, and build their network on Capitol Hill.
