My Week As A TWC Instagrammer | The Washington Center

My Week As A TWC Instagrammer

This week I took over The Washington Center's Instagram account, which allowed me to be a total tourist and to whip out my camera at every possible opportunity. Here's a walk through week five of the Spring 2017 semester!


Day 1:

My first day as a TWC Instagrammer featured a picture of myself (below) with an introduction. If civil engineering doesn't work out, I'm convinced that my boyfriend could have a career in photography.



Day 2:

Suffered from a case of the Terrible Tuesdays. This LED Metro message annoucing home (NoMa) as the next stop has never looked better.



Day 3:

On the third day of my takeover, I took a stroll down to Lafayette Square to see The White House. Since it was my first visit since the Inaugural stage was taken down, I took advantage of the D.C. heatwave by snapping some photos in front of my future home (photo cred to the super nice gentleman who noticed that my arms were too short to selfie).



Day 4:

Props to my fellow young professional Casey for this breathtaking shot! To follow her on Instagram, look for @casey_a7



Day 5:

Friday included a trip to The Washington Center headquarters, where my professional track met for an awesome networking event. On the way, my friend Lea and I stumbled across the entrance to the Dupont Underground. I couldn't help but capture these beautiful colors along the way, even though it was below 32 degrees, and I was wearing 5 inch heels :(



Day 6:

On yet another journey to Busboys & Poets, my friends and I came across the Howard University Step Team practicing in the Gallery Place-Chinatown Metro station. For the full clip, check out TWC's Instagram!



Day 7:

On my final day of the takeover, I visited the Electronic Superhighway piece at the American Art Museum with my academic course, "Scandalous Washington." Although it was 27 degrees and I had to be awake at 8 am on a Sunday, I got some really priceless pics.



As for my time as a TWC Instagrammer? I'll definitely miss it! To stay updated on the interns this spring (and beyond!), follow @TWCInternships on Instagram!
