Hi everyone! My name is Marley Gleason and I am a senior at UT this year. I am spending the fall 2019 semester in Washington, DC while I intern at the Capitol Riverfront BID through The Washington Center. This program connected me with a full-time, semester long internship so that I can gain a new experience and a different perspective in my field. Since being in DC, I’ve learned so much about public relations through the Capitol Riverfront BID. I’ve been lucky enough to work on World Series campaigns, as well as seeing first hand all that goes into developing and marketing upcoming neighborhoods. In my free time, I’ve been spending time touring all of the national museums and monuments. This city is certainly different from anywhere I’ve ever been. I’m very grateful to UT’s Honors Program for giving me this amazing opportunity!
