I highly encourage any college student from Hawaii, especially those who have recently graduated from high school, to apply. If you are interested in pursuing a career in political science or just want to become more knowledgeable about Your Government, then you should make the effort and apply for an internship at the White House. Things that you may do but are not limited to are performing normal office duties, attending weekly lectures, voluteering at special events, participating in tours [very likely and often], participating in a community service project with the First Lady [very likely]. In addition, besides meeting the President and the First Lady, you can meet and mingle with Hawaii's representatives in the US House and US Senate: District 1 Representative Colleen Hanabusa, representing Central Oahu; District 2 Representative Mazi Hirono, representing East Oahu, Kauai, Molokai, Maui, and the Big Island; Senator Daniel Akaka; Senator Daniel Inouye.
