45 Days – By Sylvie Batchelor, 2014 Intern to Senator Pat Jones

45 days Sylvie  Collage

It is crazy that we have reached the last day of the 2014 Legislative session! In the beginning, it feels like the busy days will never end, but now that they almost have. I am sad to say goodbye.

Throughout this process, I have grown more than I could have imagined. I have learned the process inside and out and made meaningful friendships. I am very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Senator Patricia Jones. She is an amazing mentor and has taught me valuable lessons for my future career goals.

One day I plan to run for office. I will be sitting at one of those desks and have more responsibility than ever before. But I am sure that this experience has equipped me with the knowledge I need to make a difference in this environment.

In these 45 days, I have learned that our legislators are under-appreciated and perhaps misunderstood. I have witnessed such a sense of camaraderie and impeccable work ethic. What our legislators have done in 45 days for this state is astounding. Thank you to everyone for making this the best experience for me.
