Major: International Affairs and French

“It was a rewarding experience. I believe that in order to tackle the problem of proliferation, there must be more involvement in studying this issue. I feel fortunate to have become involved in this study. Also, the issue of WMDs is a significant part of my interest in international peace and security.

I recommend that the CNS program is certainly a preparation for the next generation of nonproliferation activism. I gained significant knowledge and practical experience in my research area and chose my own research topic. Given the limited attention on Africa in terms of nonproliferation, I see the research I did as unique.”
