TANIP 2018 Alumni
TASHA J. BOYER YALE UNIVERSITY
I have immense gratitude for the Royal Thai Embassy and the U.S.-Asia Institute for collaborating to create the TANIP program that made last summer possible. It was an unforgettable experience that Rachel, Ginger, and I will cherish for the rest of our lives.
RACHEL FORREST UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA - LOS ANGELES
Participating in the Thai American National Internship program was such an amazing and rewarding experience that I am extremely grateful for. Experiencing this internship with Ginger and Tasha was so fulfilling as we bonded over relatable Thai-American experiences, and were able to meet our common role model Sen. Tammy Duckworth. Meeting Sen. Duckworth alongside Sen. Durbin and Rep. Kelly at an Illinois constituent coffee event was definitely one of the highlights of the internship.
GINGER SLENTZ BOSTON UNIVERSITY
A few days before starting TANIP you could ask anyone at home, I did not want to go to Washington D.C. and had no plans on working in Congress post grad. However now reflecting on my summer with TANIP, as cheesy as it sounds, I can say it was an experience that I wouldn’t trade for the world.
