2014 Intern Spotlight: Aly Minamide

Aly Minamide
Home Institution: Claremont McKenna College
International Relations
CNS Project:
IONPNuclear Threat Initiative

“I came into this internship with only a brief understanding of security-related issues. I came out of it ready to write my senior thesis on the future of nuclear weapons. That’s kind of a big deal. The CNS internship gave me a new range of possibilities for my career, a network of faculty with which I could make valuable connections, and a family of fellow interns that made my summer one of the best so far. And you really can’t beat the gorgeous, beautiful place that is Monterey.”
