The road to this letter has been a long one. In fact, arguably 10 years long. When I was young I thought I had the world figured out. I thought I was the marionettist and the world my marrionette. So, when the question arises as too why I would like to intern with Congressman Salas, the answer is easy; to fullfill my never dying passion for public service.
While some kids wanted to be fireman or police officers, doctors or even lawyers, my dream was a little more radical, it was a dream or a passion, if you will, to be the governor of this great state I call home.
Now, at a more wiser age and having learned a lot along the way I feel that a internship with Congressman Salas would benifit me by allowing me to quench my thirst for public service. It will allow me to see light in areas I thought would forever be dark. It provides an outlet where the rubber meets the road. Public service should be a duty that no American should ever consider a burden. It is the American way, in my opinion, to defend those with no voice. To be dillegent and always in the persuit of justice; even if true justice for one means to be condemned by the masses.
In conclusion, I thank you for the opportunity to apply for this internship position. It was President Obama who poetically said, “No matter who you are, what you look like, were you come from, you can make it. That’s an essential promise of America. Where you start should not determine where you end up.” Those words are a beacon of hope that still ring true today. I may have come from property, but that shall not determine my propsperity.
