ATLANTA — Anthony Eugene Hill Jr. is a second-year economics and political science double major. As a student in the Georgia Legislative Intern Program (GLIP), Hill is representing Georgia State University in the House Minority Leader’s Office.
Hill was looking for internship experience ahead of pursuing a career in law. Having found a program that gives him hands-on experience and course credits, Hill knew this was a chance to make the most of his undergraduate experience.
“I felt I would’ve been foolish to disregard such an opportunity,” he said.
During his experience, Hill hopes to gain a comprehensive understanding of the law. He figured “there would be no better place to become more acquainted with the law than the Capitol.”
He also adds that he is “making valuable connections with key players in this massive political atmosphere.”
His day-to-day responsibilities include bill reports, gathering data about representatives and their committees, and assisting with various tasks around the office.
When asked his thoughts on the program, Hill said, “I love GLIP so far, and continue to thank God every day for leading me to such an amazing opportunity. It seems that the internship is everything that I hoped for and more — all the way from witnessing and being a part of the legislative process firsthand to enjoying the free breakfast left behind from caucus meetings.”
