Anabel Moreno Mendez ’19

Anabel Moreno Mendez ’19 is a senior majoring in government with a focus on international relations. She spent this past summer working under the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs with the U.S. embassy in Mexico City. As part of the internship, she interned for the political section of the embassy, which works directly with the Mexican government and other important partners to strengthen the bilateral U.S.-Mexico relationship. Anabel was able to gain experience in the everyday diplomatic operations between the US and one of its most important global partners. Especially now, when the crucial bilateral relationship is in a precarious situation (relations are particularly strained due to the Trump administration's stance on NAFTA and border control, as well as the fact that the US Ambassador to Mexico has recently resigned), this was an exciting and unique time for her to take advantage of this opportunity.

Matthew Magann ’21

Matthew Magann ’21 is a sophomore planning to major in government (together with Earth Science), with a focus on the Middle East. This summer, he interned in Amman, Jordan as the Communications and Social Media Intern at Collateral Repair Project (CRP), a small NGO serving Jordan's urban refugee population, especially those recently displaced from Syria. The organization focuses both on immediate assistance and longer-term community building. It maintains a community center in Amman's Hashemi Shamali neighborhood, and offers various social services and programs for refugees. Matt's responsibilities included interviewing people at CRP’s community center, writing articles and blogposts, and maintaining CRP’s social media presence. He also taught an English class and helped out with various programs at the center. Through this internship, Matt felt like he was able to make a difference and gain firsthand experience of the reality of the refugee crisis. The experience has changed the way he understands the Middle East, and more broadly, how he understands the world.
