This summer Sparkle is interning with the Department of State at the U.S. embassy in Bucharest, Romania. Sparkle works in the Consular Section where she assists with the processing of non immigrant and immigrant visas for Romanian citizens. She also aides with robust fraud prevention and has visited incarcerated U.S. citizens to ensure their well being and that their human rights are being respected. In order to receive a full understanding of diplomatic work, she has sought out additional opportunities and responsibilities with other sections of the U.S. Embassy. For example, she presented to a group of Romanian high school students on education in the U.S. through the Public Diplomacy section. The highlight of her summer was the unique opportunity to assist with and attend the EU-US ministerial meetings that included the AG William Barr, various Romanian Ministers, and the EU.
