Schiff Hosts Breakfast for TACL, IAPAC, CASIC and KAC Interns

Pasadena, CA – This morning, Rep. Adam Schiff (CA-29) hosted about 40 interns from the Taiwanese American Citizens League (TACL), Indochinese American Political Action Committee (IAPAC), CAUSE’s California Asian American Student Internship Coalition (CASIC) Leadership Academy, and the Korean American Coalition (KAC) for breakfast at the Los Angeles Zoo. 

“It was a pleasure to meet and interact with the interns involved in the TACL, IAPAC, CASIC and KAC programs, all of whom were exceptionally impressive with bright and prosperous futures ahead of them,” Rep. Schiff said. “I learned the value of internship experiences as a young person interning for a handful of public officials, and I hope these students have equally rewarding experiences.  I like to joke that my office is like ‘Hotel California’ – you can check out, but you can never leave. I encouraged the young people to stay in touch with my office, as well as the offices in which they are interning, to keep us informed about their academic and professional success.”

Interns from TACL, IAPAC, CASIC and KAC are participating in summer internship programs for high school and college students, spending the summer working in legislative offices.  The breakfast kicked off with remarks from Zoo Director John Lewis and the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association (GLAZA) President Connie Morgan, followed by a brief Washington update from Rep. Schiff, as well as a question and answer session between the Congressman and the interns. After the breakfast, the interns split into groups for private tours of the zoo.
