My name is Suria Vanrajah and I am a rising senior at Middlebury College from New York City. I am pursuing a joint major in Political Science and Anthropology and have used my interdisciplinary major to study national security issues from various theoretical angles. I have previously interned with MIIS’s Center on Terrorism, Extremism, and Counterterrorism and I am a research intern at Middlebury College’s Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs. In my free time, I am the president of Middlebury College Democrats, a board member of Middlebury Model United Nations, and a campus tour guide. After graduation, I hope to pursue a career with the federal government working in WMD nonproliferation or counter-terrorism.
