BOSTON – Representative Richard M. Haggerty is proud to announce Ramla Hagi as the first intern of the 2019 -2020 legislative session. Ramla was responsible for designing social media material and managing administrative duties at the Representative’s State House Office.
Ramla graduated from Woburn Memorial High School in 2018 and is currently finishing her freshman year at UMASS Boston seeking a degree in Biology with a minor in Political Science. Ramla developed an interest in politics when she participated in Youth and Government her sophomore year where she held leadership positions as a Committee Chair, Senator, and elected member of the Governor’s Cabinet.
“From interning here at the State House, I was able to experience firsthand the daily functions of a State Representative, policy making, and real-life aspects of the legislative process,” said Ramla Hagi. “I had the opportunity to build on my team working and communication skills by connecting with many people and expanding on my professional network. The skills and valuable experience I gained helped to enhance my career development and set a direction on my civic career path and goals in government.”
“It’s been great having Ramla join our team these past 8 weeks,” said Rep. Haggerty. “She brought with her a strong knowledge of social media platforms, attention to detail, and fresh ideas that were immensely helpful in establishing a working foundation for our office to build off of.”
Ramla recently finished her 8-week Spring Internship with Rep. Haggerty’s office. The Representative’s office will be continuing the internship program through the summer and is in the process of considering the application packages of potential interns from the 30th Middlesex District.
