Avnee Paranjape, an alumna and recipient of the President’s Medal for academic excellence and leadership at the U of R in 2016, thoroughly enjoys walking the corridors of power on Parliament Hill. Paranjape is one of 10 parliamentary interns in Ottawa and, based on her experience, encourages current students to apply for one of the positions. ”Parliament Hill is an exciting, bizarre, and wonderful place to work. It's so neat to see something happening live in the House or during a committee meeting, and then see it as a news story later that day,” says Paranjape. The 10-month internship began in September 2017 and will run until June 2018.
