Arianna Miller is a second semester MPA candidate. Her primary focus is development in Sub-Saharan Africa with an emphasis on capacity building.
During the summer of 2014, Arianna had the opportunity to be part of the pilot of Design, Partnering, Management and Innovation in Kenya (DPMI Kenya). DPMI introduced her to project skills such as the logical framework, intervention design, and results framework that she hopes she will one day master.
After the training period, Arianna interned as the Health and Livelihood Improvement Associate at the Omega Foundation in Kisumu, Kenya. In that role, she developed a project on the inclusion of mentally disabled persons in society, and facilitated leadership & management workshops for vulnerable populations. Her time in Kenya aided her personal and professional growth tremendously.
Arianna’s aspiration is to help communities harvest their strengths and abilities to create a positive change within their communities.
