PARIS YSU student interns at the US Embassy

Youngstown State University sophomore Celeste Marshall is spending this semester working in the U.S. Embassy in Paris as a U.S. Department of State student intern.

The State Department program offers U.S. citizen students the opportunity to participate in unpaid internships through an intensive educational and experiential learning experience that provides professional experience and personal growth and development within a foreign affairs environment.

Marshall will gain hands-on experience and insight into the substance and daily operations of U.S. foreign policy.

Although the State Department requires upperclassman status, through college classes in high school, CLEP tests and her first year at YSU Marshall qualified. The Cortland resident also helped her chances by participating in activities at YSU’s English Language Institute. It also didn’t hurt that she speaks French and Arabic.

The internship will be in the economic sector, but her precise job duties and housing have yet to be worked out.

“I feel my experience will help me learn beyond the textbook with my immersion into French culture,” said Marshall.

A University Scholar pursuing political science and pre-law degrees, Marshall stays busy with studying, volunteer work, community service, meeting and talking with the international students, studying new languages and cultures, reading and dance.

After her fall semester in Paris and a brief return to the United States for the holidays, Marshall will study abroad at Yeditepe University in Istanbul, Turkey, in the spring to study Turkish as part of her plans to study Middle Eastern cultures.
