In the Fall of 2010, I applied for an internship with the Independence Institute, a conservative think tank in Golden, Colorado. That internship under columnist Jay Ambrose continues to this day. Before I applied, I wrote this letter of introduction. Not only did I get the internship, but I was able to use this letter to fulfill an assignment for my Technical Writing class.
