Senior Jasmine Stuart has developed an interest in the world of politics, leading her to an internship this spring in the office of Congressman C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger in Timonium. There, under the mentorship of staff assistant David Heitlinger, she has been responding to federal inquiries from those in the congressman's district, helping the community members who call the office for answers to all things connected to national governance. Jasmine's skills in negotiating through the maze of federal bureaucracy have been exceptional.
