"My most #OnlyatGW moment was participating in an NBC panel in Lisner... I was literally given a stage to showcase what I learned during my time at GW, through courses in media history and political theory, and through my internships on the Hill and at the White House. The most important lesson I learned at GW was how to engage in debate intellectually and respectfully."
