For Edwin, the best part about going to school right next to DC is how close all of the DC-based nonprofit organizations are. These organizations have offered a wealth of resources for Edwin, providing all sorts of opportunities, such as events, scholarships, and internships.
“I attended the National Council of La Raza’s Lideres Summit at their annual conference in DC. I applied for scholarships and internships through the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, and I even met the president of the Hispanic Heritage Fund at a local function.”
“I also got an internship at the Association of Latino Professionals in Finance and Accounting. It’s easy to connect with all these opportunities because they’re only a Metro ride away from Marymount.”
