Anastasia interned for two Members of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) while participating in the Intern: Scotland program. During her internship, she found it rewarding to see how her work was presented on the Parliamentary floor, and how her motions, questions and research were integrated into the speeches her MSPs gave in the Chamber. Anastasia integrated her internship experience into the research she had been pursuing for her major at UCSB. Anastasia knew her long-term goal was to work internationally. The contacts she made with many professionals working in the field of international relations and human rights have now become invaluable.

“The sense of contribution and accomplishment I felt was very fulfilling. This experience is a highlight of my résumé, and something that only a few people back home can say they have done.” - Anastasia N., UCSB EAP UK-Scotland
