Michelle Lahey (1L) is one of three Canadian students selected for a Jaimie Anderson internship in Ottawa this summer. Starting in May, Michelle will be working in the office of MP John Williamson (New Brunswick Southwest).
As Michelle tells it, “My passion is the Canadian political process, and I hope to work on the Hill in some capacity later in my career – I am absolutely delighted to be given this once in a lifetime opportunity!”
About the internships
The Jaimie Anderson Internships provide young Canadians with a four-month opportunity to work in the office of a federal Member of Parliament. Candidates must demonstrate a strong level of personal effort and achievement in their academic and life pursuits, and have a keen interest in Canadian politics.
The program underscores the importance of developing genuine connections and friendships in Ottawa. As such, the student interns participate in discussions with people in the media, politics and business, in order to gain a positive, enriching and hands-on experience of the political process in and around Parliament Hill.
