"As a political science major I had the opportunity to live, study, and work in Washington, D.C., as part of my International Program experience. I personally think the D.C. program is the best because of all the ways in which it prepares you for life after Pepperdine; I worked full-time as an intern in the Office of Correspondence at the White House and then I attended class in the evenings. Being in that dynamic and fast-paced environment allowed me to make a lot of different connections that have helped me to grow as a person, student, and young professional."

Omari interned full-time at the White House and attended classes in the evening as part of the Washington, D.C. program.
