Student Interns with Congressional Black Caucus

Florida A&M University (FAMU) physics student Reamonn Soto will intern with the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) during the spring 2010 semester.  Soto is one of 15 students who will participate in the internship program. Every semester, members of the Caucus are assigned an intern for nine weeks. 

Soto, a 23-year old from Tallahassee, Fla., begins his internship in January 2010 through May.  Soto is also a Florida-Georgia Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation student.

“I heard about the internship while attending a Florida Democratic Party Convention in Orlando,” said Soto. “After speaking with Congressman Kendrick Meek, I felt compelled to pursue the internship program.”

Soto has worked on Congressman Meek’s, a FAMU alumnus and the CBC chair, U.S. Senate campaign.  He also served as an intern for Florida House of Representatives Alan Williams. 

Soto feels that his degree in physics will give him the platform to solve problems that the U.S. is facing today.  Soto’s excitement in becoming a leader in the community came after his involvement with the Young Democrats of America. 

Soto said, “One of my favorite quotes is by Albert Einstein – ‘We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.’” 

While in D.C., Soto will receive a scholarship to attend George Washington University where he will take classes, such as political management, to develop a message for voters. He hopes to learn how to become a political candidate while in D.C., return to FAMU for graduate school and then run for public office. 
Soto is a member of the FAMU Honors Program, the National Society of Black Physicists, Phi Sigma Theta honor society, and the Model United Nations.

Moderate to strong winds blowing from the southwest to south will prevail over
northern and Central Luzon and coastal waters along these areas will
be moderate to rough. This glass would cost less than $1000 and
