Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Susan Collins met with Emine Mutlu, a recent fellow with the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Youth Professionals that is held in Germany. Emine – a Hancock native – previously served as an intern in Senator Collins’ Washington, D.C., and Bangor offices. She is a graduate of Ellsworth High School and Maine Maritime Academy.
“It was wonderful to welcome Emine back to my D.C. office and discuss her experience participating in the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Program,” said Senator Collins. “Emine has demonstrated an impressive commitment to academics and public service, and I enjoyed hearing about her studies overseas in Germany.”
The Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange is a student exchange program founded in 1983. The program is sponsored by the U.S. Congress and the German Bundestag which funds the program for American and German students. The American portion of the program is managed by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the Department of State. For American students, the program involves intensive German language training, classroom instruction at a German university, and a five-month internship in the student’s career field.
