Colette Masunaga, Konawaena High School Class of 2009, has been named a White House intern for the fall session.

Masunaga joins several dozen other young adults in working at the White House through its internship program, which is designed to make the White House accessible to future leaders around the nation and to prepare those devoted to public service for future leadership opportunities.

Masunaga, daughter of Margaret and Gail, graduated earlier this year from University of California at Davis, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations with a minor in Asian American Studies.

She previously was a Rotary exchange student in Udon Thani, Thailand and also served as a U.S. Senate Page appointed by Sen. Inouye.

A White House Internship provides an opportunity to gain valuable professional experience and build leadership skills.

Interns work in one of several White House departments, including the Domestic Policy Council, the National Economic Council, the Office of Cabinet Affairs, the Office of Chief of Staff, the Office of Communications, the Office of Digital Strategy, the Office of the First Lady, the Office of Legislative Affairs, the Office of Management and Administration, the Office of Presidential Correspondence, the Office of Presidential Personnel, the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, the Office of Scheduling and Advance, the Office of the Vice President, the Office of the White House Counsel, and the Office of White House Fellows.
