Internship Experience

The IWP Internship Experience: Holly Horton

Holly HortonWhen I initially applied for an internship with IWP, I knew it was the right opportunity.  My role at IWP consisted of administration work and day-to-day operations.

However, what I consider a revered experience was working alongside Dr. John Lenczowski.  Knowing a bit of his background and with my growing interest in communism and Russian affairs, I got to assist him in research for different areas.  My area of focus was Chinese influence operations.  In addition, I studied totalitarianism and its impact on society’s past, present, and future.

I appreciate all my time at IWP, from the guest lectures, interactions with staff and faculty, and administration work, to my research there.  My experience at IWP has been phenomenal, and its community has offered support in my own personal circumstances.

I am forever grateful for my experience at IWP.
