Student sees Congress through Hispanic program
Martha Palomino, of Issaquah, is one of 30 university students from across the United States participating in the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s Congressional Internship Program.
As a Hispanic youth leadership development and educational organization, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute assigns interns to congressional offices on Capitol Hill for eight weeks, from June to August, to learn about the nation’s legislative process and issues pending before the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.
“It is such a privilege to be part of an internship like the one CHCI offers to Hispanic students across the nation, and I am proud to represent the Latino community in Issaquah, Seattle University, Seattle and Washington state,” said Palomino, who is majoring in finance.
She was placed with the office of Sen. Patty Murray.
