What Inspired You To Join The U.S. Digital Corps?

"I was seeking an opportunity that would enable me to use my skills to effect change in and help improve government services. The Digital Corps seemed like a perfect springboard to break into federal government as an early-career technologist."

Fun Fact:

Meenu was inspired to join public service while studying abroad in Jordan in 2016 through a State Department-funded scholarship to learn Arabic.
