Home Institution: University of Kent
Major: International Relations and French

“Working for CNS this summer was a very rewarding experience. Being new to the policies of nuclear non-proliferation, CNS offered me the opportunity to broaden my knowledge of international affairs and taught me new perspectives on global issues. Due to the expertise of my colleagues and the chance to research my own region of Central Asia, I was able to study in-depth an area in which I have an interest.

As part of a diverse group of interns from around the world, I bonded quickly with my peers and we explored the beautiful state of California in our spare time. I am very grateful to CNS for the experience I gained, the friends I made during this internship, and the lessons learned which laid the foundation for entering the working world with confidence.”
