Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Susan Collins announced that Steffi Victoria of Dover-Foxcroft has been awarded a spring internship in her Washington, D.C. office. Steffi is a graduate of Foxcroft Academy.


“Steffi provided excellent constituent service to her fellow Mainers while working in my Bangor office, and I am delighted to welcome her back to continue this public service,” said Senator Collins.  “Through her extracurricular activities and commitment to academics, she has demonstrated a strong work ethic and leadership skills.  I am pleased that she will have the opportunity to witness the legislative process firsthand through this internship in my D.C. office.”


Steffi emigrated from India when she was eight years old, and she has been a U.S. citizen since 2020.  She first met Senator Collins during the UMaine Cohen Institute Summer Program’s Washington, D.C., trip last year, and she completed an internship in Senator Collins’ Bangor office last fall.
