Close Up in DC

Marianas Close Up students visited their congressional office on Wednesday to talk about issues affecting them, tour the Capitol, and eat lunch. We met in the Marianas last month in preparation for their trip, and it was great to see them all again here in DC. Left to right standing: Kaye Ann Obando, Martin Jay Madamba, Brandee Hunter, Aundrea Aldan, Hannah Kathlyn Santos, Amron Jo Barcinas, David Robert Mendiola, Merari Aniga, Pheona Georgette David, and chaperones Felix Mresbang and Claudia Palacios. Kneeling: Catherine Byen, Jemimah Borromeo, Allison Sumor, Jersee Ruth Nicdao, Jovina Pua. Congress provides the funds that make Close Up possible.
