Mike's real job is just to soak up the sunlight.

Question One: Who are you?
I’m Michael Liu, a rising sophomore thinking about majoring in MS&E or IR with a minor in Chinese.

Question Two: What are you doing this summer?

I’m working at the awesome Sunlight Foundation, a think tank and tech non-profit dedicated to improving government transparency and accountability. I’m an intern with the communications and policy divisions.

Question Three: So what do you actually do?

A whole bunch of stuff! You’ll usually find me at my desk either reading news and archiving our press mentions or researching state and national transparency efforts. I might also be on the Hill attending a government transparency event or learning Python from one of the developers here at the office.

Question Four: Other than work, what are you doing?

Right now I’m enjoying our nation’s humid yet awe-inspiring capital, visiting museums and national landmarks in between squash games with Barack. I’m also going skydiving in a few weeks!

Question Five: Cream cheese or dinosaurs?

Both. I’d love to walk through Jurassic Park eating a bagel.

Thanks Mike!
