ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A California student has been selected to participate in a summer internship program with the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), one of largest women's political organizations in the nation.
Sophia Hernandez has been awarded the Dorothy Andrews Kabis Memorial Internship. Named for the former president of the NFRW who was later appointed U.S. treasurer by President Richard Nixon, the program gives young women the opportunity to spend part of the summer at NFRW headquarters in Alexandria, Va.
Sophia is entering her third year at California State University, San Marcos, where she is studying business organizational management and criminology. She is working her way through college as a field representative for California State Assemblymember Rocky Chavez and plans to pursue a career in criminal justice and public policy. Sophia is active in Temecula Valley Republican Women Federated and the MIT Enterprise Forum San Diego, and is a member of the American Association of University Women and of Women Impacting Public Policy. She looks forward to working with her College Republicans chapter to highlight the growing importance of millennials in the Republican Party.
“The Kabis Internship is, without a doubt, the best internship in Washington, D.C.,” Sophia says. “The staff has allowed me to be directly involved with a plethora of projects and has given me free reign to research and write about political issues. This experience will stick with me for a lifetime and will continue to assist me throughout my future endeavors.”
Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation, making it one of the largest women’s political organizations in the country. The grassroots organization works to promote the principles and objectives of the Republican Party, elect Republican candidates, inform the public through political education and activity, and increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.
