My 21-year-old daughter Jessica arrived safely in Doha Qatar yesterday and reports that she is settling into her new apartment before starting classes at Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar (CMU-Q). She will be studying in the Middle East through April 2010.
This week’s Willow Glen Resident community newspaper published an article on Jessica’s work called “Internships help Willow Glen resident narrow career focus” (8 January 2010, by Mary Gottschalk, p.18). The half-page article describes her summer 2009 internship for the World Organization for Human Rights USA in Washington, D.C. and even mentions WP668, our backyard caboose. Jessica is quoted about her internship: “I expected to be dealing with coffee or filing. A lot of my friends were doing piece work and were not trusted with real responsibility…. I learned so much about human rights and how we litigate in the United States. It’s exactly the kind of work I want to do.”
