UAB Honors Graduate Scores Internship at the White HouseEthan Mallick Hossain, a May honors graduate of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), is a summer participant in the White House Internship program.
“When I was selected, I realized I would actually be interning for one of the most powerful and exciting places in the world,” said Hossain, a 21-year-old Gadsden native. “I could not ask for a better opportunity.”
He has been assigned to work with the National Economic Council (NEC), which principally is tasked with coordinating policymaking for domestic and international economic issues. As an intern, Hossain conducts research, generates memos and briefing materials and assists with other projects as needed.
“The White House is much faster, intense and exciting than I ever could have imagined,” he said. “I have learned so much about government and the different topics, ranging from energy to housing to financial markets, that the government must discuss every day.”
