I graduated in 2016 with a major in Public Health and double minors in Spanish and Biology. I spent the fall of my senior year doing a special off-campus semester studying Sustainable Development at American University in Washington, D.C., where I was first formally introduced to international development issues. I was immediately intrigued in the topic and am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to continue learning about this topic while providing direct service to others. In June, I began interning at the Dallas office of the International Rescue Committee, a refugee resettlement agency, and am currently an Assistant Caseworker in the Resettlement Department, as well as a temporary fill-in for our Cultural Orientation program. I’ve worked with refugees from Burma, Syria, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, the Congo, as well as other countries, and everyday is different. I hope to attend graduate school in the next couple of years and continue working in environments that allow me to provide assistance to others who need it.
