Sietse Goffard is a rising junior at Harvard College. Here is his “summer postcard” from his prestigious Director’s Internship through the Harvard Institute of Politics!
“This summer, I worked at the Newton office of U.S. Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy III, focusing on helping the staff with constituent work — working “on the front lines” to answer calls and emails from constituents needing assistance navigating dense government bureaucracies. I learned a lot about federal law as our office sought to help people across the 4th District with various different issues. In witnessing how dedicated and hard-working elected officials and their staffers are every day, I truly came to view their work in an even more admirable light.”
