STATEHOUSE (Feb. 28, 2020) – Franklin resident Jasmine Noel is gaining experience as an intern with State Rep. John Young (R-Franklin) and his fellow members of the Indiana House of Representatives during the 2020 legislative session.

Noel is the daughter of Rebecca Noel. She graduated from Butler University with a bachelor’s degree in international relations, and is currently working on a master’s degree in health policy and organization through the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

“As a graduate student who’s interested in health policy, it’s been so helpful for me to see how policy gets translated into law,” Noel said. “I also have really enjoyed meeting a wide array of constituents, and then having the opportunity to see how their concerns could be best addressed through policy changes or improvements.”

As a legislative intern, Noel corresponds with constituents through phone calls, letters and emails while also staffing committee hearings and floor proceedings.

“Several young professionals from our community used the House internship program to gain valuable experience and launch their careers,” Young said. “Jasmine is a talented individual, and she has done great work throughout session.”

Each year, the House of Representatives offers paid internship opportunities to college students, law-school students, graduate students and recent college graduates for the duration of each legislative session.
