College Student Enjoys Perks Of Working For A SenatorBy Audri Taylors
Tristan Bagala, a 21 year old student from the University of Georgia, is working for a US senator, travelling to France in order to work for the Catholic Church, and serving dessert to the Canadian defense minister at the Canadian Embassy during a presidential inauguration.
Aside from being a graduating student at his university where he is double majoring in political science and marketing, he is also Washington interning in the office Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb, Daily Comet reported.
Bagala is one of the three students in the same institution who is spending this semester in Washington D.C, according to The Augusta Chronicle. He said that he is working for 50 hours every week, then he goes home 2 nights weekly and have classes. And since it is already his last semester already, he said that this could be a way from him to possibly transition into a job but is still unsure if that is his path.
Bagala finds his experiences in the nation's capitol eye opening and informative, because it takes a lot to make sure everything is in order, he says. He describes that even a simple and short interview with a senator that you can watch on the news will have to require 15 to 20 people to make it happen.
Bagala enjoys a full scholarship as a Chambliss Fellow in UGA, and not only that. He also is entitled for a travel stipend for educational trips. He used to study at Oxford during his college career, then worked for the archdiocese in Tours, France. He is also soon going to Japan for two weeks to pay a visit to Buddhist Temples and enjoy his time in Tokyo Disneyland. All these are things that Bagala worked really hard for the moment that he entered school.
