Andrea Lu, 2008 Intern
"As a former science and technology reporter at my college newspaper, I thought I knew the basics of science journalism. Science showed me how wrong I was, but in a helpful, enlightening manner. As one of the most respected scientific publications in the world, Science opened a lot of doors to famous scientists, events and outstanding reporters. The time I spent working on short briefs, online news stories, and a magazine article honed my interviewing and writing skills. I also discovered that if you're passionate about science writing, Washington, D.C. is the place to do it."
