As a First-Year Fellow, Jared Cape ’21 interned at the Office of U.S. Congresswoman Anne McLane Kuster under the mentorship of Ann McLane Kuster ’78. The following is an excerpt from his final report.

I interned at the Office of Congresswoman Kuster which represents and serves the New Hampshire District 2 constituents. This includes voicing constituents’ thoughtful concerns and opinions, taking legislative action in the best interest of the district, and assisting constituents through casework.

Every morning, I was tasked with assembling a daily news briefing of NH news for the Congresswoman, staff, and Democratic Whip’s Office. I, along with other interns, collected, relayed, and responded to constituent messages. We also engaged with constituents on Capital tours. Information gathering through research and briefings were additional tasks.

During the previous summer, I had the opportunity to intern in Congresswoman Kuster’s local New Hampshire office. During that internship, I never thought I would be able to serve in her D.C. office. Over the course of this summer, I made professional and personal relationships that I hope to maintain and grow. I cherish memories made during the summer, everything from sitting on the Capital steps with the other Fellows during the Fourth of July, to meeting with the House Minority Leader’s health policy staff member.

Thank you to the Rockefeller for making possible this life-changing experience.
