2008 Intern Spotlight: Ross Friedman

Ross Friedman

Name: Ross Friedman
Home Institution: Emory University
Major: Political Science and Music Performance

“The internship was a great experience that helped me learn about nonproliferation through research and discussion with staff members. The lectures were the most unique aspect of the program. Having the ability to interact with these experts was a fantastic experience, considering that at my university, such experts are not available for conversations. 

If anyone asks about my experience at CNS, I will highlight my work on the Resolution 1540 project, the discussions at lectures, my increased understanding about international organizations and the interaction with staff and knowledgeable graduate students. Additionally, it provided me the opportunity to experience a different part of the country.”
