Brittany O’Nan
Brittany O’Nan, of Bartlett, will intern this summer with the Republican National Committee in Washington, D.C. She will spend May 29-Aug. 7 working in the areas of fundraising, event planning and communication strategies. O’Nan, a senior, has a double major in business finance and marketing.
“I feel so lucky that I get to do this internship,” said O’Nan. “The Republican National Committee is such a great organization, and I am really excited to be working with them. I know Washington, D.C., will be a lot different from my hometown, so I am nervous, but so ready at the same time. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” She added that the internship also would be a good experience for her because she will be living on her own in Washington and required to adapt to different environments ­– good preparation for when she travels in the future.  “I’ll also get more experience with meeting new people and building strong work relationships.”
O’Nan plans to attend law school or graduate school when she graduates in May 2011. “I?plan on my career being more than just a way for me to make money. I want to make an impact on other lives, as well.” She added, “One day, I truly hope to work for a firm helping families with their financial problems.”
