Udall Thanks Albuquerque Native for Work During Washington, D.C., Internship

WASHINGTON — Today, U.S. Senator Tom Udall thanked Albuquerque native Silvia Martinez for her work as an intern in his Washington, D.C., office this summer. During her six weeks on Capitol Hill, Martinez worked primarily on issues related to health and education.

“Interns like Silvia play integral roles in my office’s operations,” said Udall. “I hope she finds her experiences during this internship rewarding as she pursues her dream of advocating for our nation’s immigrants.” 

Martinez said she appreciates how inclusive Udall’s staff has been in integrating this summer’s interns into the office’s legislative tasks.

“Interning at Senator Udall’s office this summer has solidified my resolve to work in public policy,” Martinez said. “I am incredibly thankful for this opportunity and hope to carry the lessons I learned here throughout my career.”

Martinez is the daughter of Emilia Martinez and is a graduate of Cibola High School. Currently a senior at Pomona College, she studies Latin American studies and politics and is a member of the school’s First-Gen Low Income Scholars Program. She completed an internship in Senator Udall’s Albuquerque office in the summer of 2016.
