Today, Saturday, September 24, 2016 is momentous for two big reasons: today is the official opening of the great National Museum of African American History and Culture (@NMAAHC) on the Mall. And today is also the Cap & Gown Convocation celebrating our senior Class of 2017 at Trinity (@TrinityDC)!!!
Senior Airen Washington exemplifies the great achievements we celebrate today. She is president of the College Democrats, an active student leader on campus, and she spent part of the summer interning with AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee). She is currently interning with Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, and as part of her internship she had the extraordinary opportunity to get a “sneak preview” of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture. That’s Airen above outside of the museum, and below are a few of her photos from inside:
Airen also shared these photos from her summer experience with AIPAC: Here she is on a lobbying visit to Capitol Hill:This is Airen and student leaders from other colleges on a panel discussing their responsibilities as citizen leaders of the world:
Airen Washington truly exemplifies the ideal of the Trinity Woman who is actively engaged in leadership and service for some of the most important issues and ideas in our society. We are so proud of her!
Stay tuned to this blog this week for more stories of Trinity seniors who are making their mark on the world!
