Christina Ru ‘21

Christina is a Quantitative Social Science major and International Studies minor from Houston, Texas. On campus, she has worked as a Learning Fellow at the Center for Social Impact, cooks at Students Fighting Hunger, plays club lacrosse, mentors freshmen in Christian Union, and does research in the Economics Department. Last winter, she spent time at International Justice Mission (IJM), a nonprofit organization based in Washington, DC dedicated to protecting the poor from violence. IJM works to rescue and restore victims of human trafficking, land grabbing, and other forced labor. Christina worked specifically with their Global Partnerships division, which mobilizes key partners/actors to help transform justice systems in the places where they have field offices. Her internship was a great way for Christina to apply her classroom based learning in a real life context, and it confirmed her desire to delve deeper into the field of development and approach global issues using quantitative tools.

Katrina Yu ’21

Katrina is a ’21 from Hong Kong, and studies Computer Science and Human-Centered Design. This summer, she had the opportunity to explore and apply both sets of interests throughout her internship with the Sustainable Therapy and New Development (STAND), an organization that provides free physical therapy services to citizens of the greater port-de-paix area in northwest Haiti. At STAND, Katrina worked under the supervision of STAND’s head epidemiologist (who is also a graduate student at the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth) and alongside a team of physiotherapists, general medicine doctors, translators, and neuroscience researchers to develop an electronic health records system for a clinic in Haiti. Though her internship was undertaken remotely due to COVID, she had an incredible experience where she learned a lot, gained valuable experience in software engineering and was able to use her technical skills for social good.
