Internship spotlight: Amy Baker {Spring 2014}

Amy Baker (Bethel College–IN) is interning for the U.S. Department of State, Investment Affairs Office.  Here’s a quick summary of what keeps her busy Tuesday through Thursday! Image

“After two months of interning in the State Department’s Economics Bureau, I am still cracking away at the massive learning curve. My time is split between drafting interagency foreign investment reports and assisting rounds of bilateral investment treaty negotiations in the Office of Investment Affairs. That’s a lot of jargon for this English major! Needless to say, I have learned far and above what I ever expected – about investments, open economies, interagency relationships, Federal agency culture, and the role of government on an international scale. It’s true – investments can be heady work, but playing a small part in raising the standard of living in developing countries has been more than rewarding. Every day at State has opened my eyes to something new that I’d never known to explore. And every day has taught me more about God’s vision for this institution.”

Amy will graduate from Bethel in May and return to D.C. to participate in the American Enterprise Institute’s Summer Institute.
