Agricultural Sciences junior makes it to White House Photography Office

College of Agricultural Sciences junior Rachel Robbins has doubled up her interests in history, government and photography into White House last semester experience which is more than rare. The development, environment and community major passed the fall last year by hanging out with the pooches of the president, documenting unpublished snapshots of the Obama administration as well as rubbing shoulders with staff and politicians of White House.

Still it was more to come for Robbins’ success stories. Previous year, she applied for Penn State’s Washington Program, an undergraduate scope given via College of Communications. The initiative chose a little number of juniors as well as seniors to pass a semester in the capital of the United States.

When there, they have the scope to take classes taken by the faculty of the Penn State and are encouraged to get an internship program in Washington DC which corresponds to their career targets. For Rachel Robbins, being selected in the Washington Program was really a dream come true.

The lady from Pittsburgh said that she love Washington, D.C., and have always wanted to live there. Even if she did not score a great internship, she knew just being in the epicenter of their country’s political scene would be a great experience.

She took a scope and applied to intern at White House via a leadership initiative for young people, called The White House Internship Program. After she was accepted, she was kept in White House’s photography office. And she also had prior experience and more importantly she had interest in photography.
