Jacob Anderson

Renew Europe


I am a junior majoring in international relations, and this past summer I worked at the Renew Europe political party at the European Parliament, located in Brussels, Belgium. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience that this internship provided me. Working at the European parliament was an invaluable experience. Being able to take part in political debates, attend meetings with MEPs, and forge relationships with coworkers was extraordinary. I will always fondly remember sitting right across from Guy Verhofstadt in a meeting that was totally in French, despite me not knowing the language. Furthermore, being able to travel around Western Europe was a boon. The photo I have attached is of myself and three of my internship colleagues as we stand in one of the most scenic part of Brussels. Thank you so much for offering me this opportunity that I otherwise would not have been able to have. It was a great pleasure.
