During the summer of 2012, Jeremy Rosenberg, a 2010 graduate of Hewlett High School and current senior at The George Washington University, interned for McCarthy. In his time serving the congresswoman, he said he witnessed her noble public servitude, attention to her constituents, and dedication to causes she held dear in the face of fierce opposition.
Rosenberg majors in international affairs with a concentration in international politics. After college he hopes to pursue a career in government, public policy, and community organizing.
Here is what he had to say about his time as an intern for McCarthy:
- What was it like to serve for Congresswoman McCarthy?
- What is the biggest lesson you took away from working with Congresswoman McCarthy?
- What was the most memorable moment from your time as an intern?
Perhaps my second most memorable moment was when a constituent from Cedarhurst called into the office. His son was moving to Washington, D.C. and he desperately wanted information of parts of the city where his son may have wanted to live. As a GW student, I was able to offer personal advice on the different neighborhoods of D.C. The constituent was extremely grateful that Rep. McCarthy's office was amiable and willing to help constituents, no matter how unusual the request may have been.
- How did she influence your career and future goals?
