The latest installment of Assemblywoman Sandy Galef's periodic television program "Dear Sandy" highlights the tremendous interning program that Assemblywoman Galef offers. To discuss their experiences while interning for the state, Assemblywoman Galef is joined by high school students Brendan Zarkower, Jeffrey Guzman, Ross Beroff, Alanna Powers and Cat Purdy. The students have interned in Assemblywoman Galef's district office during the summer and elaborate upon their experiences on this half-hour long program. Mr. Beroff and Mr. Zarkower are first time college students headed to Northeastern University and Binghamton University to study computer science and business, respectively. Ms. Powers was an active member of the office who will be continuing her education at George Mason University this fall. Ms. Purdy will also be continuing her studies in mass communications at Franklin Pierce University and Mr. Guzman will be entering the eleventh grade at the Hackley School. Building upon their experiences in Assemblywoman Galef's office, the five plan to remain active in political activities throughout their studies. This episode, entitled "Sandy's Interns," will air on Fridays in September.

Assemblywoman Galef is always looking for interns to work in her offices.
