I was fortunate to spend this past summer doing what I love – traveling, volunteering and, of course, working! For the first few weeks, I was in Thailand where I traveled on the weekends and worked full-time during the week at an emerging ecommerce firm. As a data analyst, my primary role was to create […]

Like other members of the Class of 2017, I rejoiced at the end of finals last May. All my hard work over the previous four months had paid off and I was quite proud of my performance. Little did I know, the grueling late-night hours in Olin were just beginning. After a brief respite at […]

I started off the summer working full time as a mechanic at an auto shop. I was the youngest worker there, and so I was relegated to mostly only oil changes. My job involved performing safety inspections on all the vehicles, which was a fairly intensive process. I went through a checklist, and inspected each […]

I had an eye-opening experience this summer as a Forensic Policy Intern at the Innocence Project in New York City. In its most basic structure, the organization has two branches: legal and policy. The legal side works to exonerate innocent prisoners, whereas the policy side works to prevent wrongful convictions from happening in the first […]

During my time at the United Nations I was given immense freedom to be able to attend meetings at the United Nations on various issues ranging from fracking to the education of children to global gender equality.
