Interning at Charlemagne Institute has thoroughly enriched my views of society. Instead of offering only oppressive viewpoints, Charlemagne proclaimed hope. Instead of a dismal and cynical view of history, Charlemagne has given me the optics of logic and strength. I wish every single one of my peers could be exposed to a rich intellectual heritage that Charlemagne aims to promote.
