Danielle Ryan is Roll Call's newest intern and writes mostly for Around the Hill.
A native of Dublin, Ireland, Danielle first came to Washington to study political reporting for a semester at Boston University's D.C. office and fell in love with the city and reporting from Capitol Hill.
During her semester at BU, she interned as a Washington correspondent for two New Hampshire-based local newspapers, focusing coverage on the New Hampshire and Maine Congressional delegations.
Next, Danielle spent a semester at the Washington Center for Politics & Journalism and interned in the Washington bureau of The Los Angeles Times.
Danielle is a graduate of Trinity College Dublin with a degree in business studies and this year will graduate fully from Dublin City University with a degree in international journalism.
Ryan no longer works at Roll Call.
