Photo of the Term: Spring
"Had some time to chat and take a selfie with our boss, Congressman Xavier Becerra, aka: Xavi. It's been pretty great working for a Chicano Congressman from California who makes an effort to embrace diversity in his staff, give opportunities to people of color on the hill, and understands the hardship of being a first generation college student trying to make it big."

Student Spotlight: Cassandra Wagner, UCR
Cassandra Wagner interned at 826DC this past spring. As publishing intern, she designed lesson plans for the personal narrative series at a local high school, taught students creative writing and storytelling, and assisted with book production—including copy-editing and laying out content in InDesign. Cassandra recently graduated UC Riverside with a degree in Creative Writing.
"Finding an internship you love can be a challenge, but it’s even better when an internship experience like I had with 826DC inspires a newfound passion. I never expected the program to show me an alternative career path the way that it has. I loved working with students pushing their creativity to create stories they are proud of. When all was said and done I helped compile those stories into a keepsake book."
