    GABBARD of hawaii in the house of representatives Monday, March 18, 2013 Ms. GABBARD. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to highlight a very special member of my team, Laila Goring. Laila is a University of Hawai`i student and former soldier who has been serving in my office as an intern this spring. Friday was her final day on Capitol Hill.

    In her work, she has truly displayed the aloha spirit and a heart for servant leadership. She has set the bar high for our internship program, and I hope many more students like Laila will serve and learn in my office.

    A congressional internship should not be about grabbing coffee or making copies, but about learning and growing in an environment that encourages service. Our students have so much to offer, and we have the opportunity to cultivate the next generation of leaders by demonstrating firsthand the value of public service.

    Mahalo nui loa, thank you very much, Laila, and we wish you the best of luck as you continue to pursue your goals.
