Elizabeth Triece '19
Elizabeth’s plans to continue her education at Harvard University were temporarily put on hold when, in the summer of 2019, she learned that she was accepted as an intern with the White House Internship Program. This program is highly competitive and those chosen demonstrate a commitment to public service, leadership in their community, and academic achievement. Not only was Elizabeth selected to participate in this prestigious program, she was one of only six that would work within the White House and was selected as an intern with the Office of the First Lady.
Elizabeth’s next internship was in the Office of Public and Media Affairs with the Office of the United States Trade Representative. There she assisted in preparing daily documents for review by the Ambassador and other state officials, monitored major media outlets, assisted in drafting tweets for release on USTR’s social media, and drafted press releases regarding major USTR events. In the fall of 2020, Elizabeth began pursuing her Master’s Degree in Management at Harvard University and was selected to intern with the Office of Communications and Marketing at NASA. After this 5 month internship, Elizabeth interned with the U.S. Department of State in the Office of Global Talent Management/Talent Acquisition where she was the keynote speaker for 2021 State Department interns.
In her community, Elizabeth led a group of students assisting local residents create resumes. Additionally, she was the co-founder and president of Shadeland/Spring Hill Community Outreach. This student organization tutored, counseled, and provided meals for an economically disadvantaged group of children in DeLand.
