Quote: “I’m very eager to work with the Hungary Foundation and be a part of their team as a communications intern. I regard the two months I’ll be sending in Washington DC as a crucial building block for the progression of my professional career while making lasting and fond memories. I hope to further my understanding of military law and the defense industry through the many conferences and events I’ll be attending throughout my stay.”
