Fellowship Overview

Fellowship Name
Reed Fellow in Humanitarianism

United Nations Association of Iowa
Iowa City, IA

Aims of the Fellowship
Working at the Iowa UNA, I was responsible for everything from training volunteers, writing press releases, and researching Congressional candidates to calling hotels to book meeting spaces, cleaning out the closet, and vacuuming the office.  While these may not all sound like glamorous tasks, they are necessary and someone needs to take care of them.

Faculty Sponsor: Steven Sacks
