5th District Congresswoman Jahana Hayes, a former teacher, assigned her interns a capstone project.  The project serves as a culminating academic and intellectual experience for students, typically during their senior year of High School.  One intern, Maggie O'Leary, planned and executed a self-defense presentation in partnership with Jane Doe No More and Girls Inc of Western Connecticut.  Hayes says the goal is to leave the students better than when they came.
