Major: Politics and International Relations

Hometown: Helena, Montana

My fellowship experience: Through my fellowship I was able to delve into the world of human rights non-profits and volunteerism from a unique vantage point.  I had the opportunity to research and learn in depth about human trafficking and poverty in developing nations. I was able to perform real tasks as a fellow and community outreach intern at ITEMP including but not limited to: researching and giving awareness presentations, creating a platform for perpetrator reeducation programs, designing and implementing a volunteer outreach program and maintaining and taking full advantage of online resources.
