Steven AvilaSteven Avila’s passion for politics and government took him to Washington, D.C., in 2010.

Now, it’s taken him back to work in the White House. The Palmdale native – a fall 2011 graduate with a degree in business administration – got his fi rst taste of life in the nation’s capital through the Panetta Institute for Public Policy’s Congressional Internship program.

“Now that I’m interning at the White House, I am able to see it through an exciting new perspective.”

Avila (’11, Business) started the four-month stint in January, working in the Office of Presidential Correspondence.

The office handles official correspondence on behalf of the President, responding to the letters he receives.
