SAN GABRIEL, SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA – From colleges to the White House, as students who have a chance to intern at Federal Government in Washington, DC, they owe much to the sponsorship by the International Leadership Foundation.

Sean Fisher, Victoria Peng and Janel Mendoza won their opportunities to intern in the U.S. Capital this year, who had a chance to work with different departments at the Federal level, an experience that will have a great impact on their future career. The three of them came to Southern California Thursday to talk about their experience.

Chiling Tone, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of International Leadership Foundation, said the experience to do internship in Washington, DC has enabled young leaders of the future to better understand how the Federal Government is run and how leaders in the U.S. capital are working.
