This week, MAIS highlights alumnus Jerry Davis, a Program Associate for the United Nations Development Program in Egypt. Jerry’s main responsibility is to support the Democratic Governance program. “Projects that I support are primarily focused on: enhancing electoral administration, establishing one-stop-shop legal aid offices, building capacity of an African peacekeeping Center in Cairo, and promoting anti-corruption in the public sector,” he says.
“The MAIS program most certainly prepared me to begin my career in virtually any field that is associated to the theme of social justice, particularly in an international setting,” Jerry says. Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Jerry!
El Tecolote recently interviewed MAIS student Yezel Rosales, who represented Accion Latina in the interview. Yezel’s position at Accion Latina, which promotes social justice and cultural pride, incorporates public relations, social media, and graphic design. Thank you for sharing your experience, Yezel!
Hayley, a current MAIS student, is spending her summer interning at the Honorary Consulate of South Africa in New Orleans. Hayley is responsible for promoting South Africa within the city, as well as fundraising. Thanks for sharing your experience, Hayley!
This week’s alumni post highlights December graduate Monica B. A Program Associate at the World Affairs Council in SF, Monica says “I enjoy working at the Council because I get to be exposed to a diverse set of speakers and topics that fall under the umbrella of international relations. I also have the opportunity to interact with globally-minded members of the public.” Keep up the good work, Monica!
MAIS student Elizabeth was able to network with MAIS alumnus (Fall ’11) Andrew to secure her internship at the Immigrant Legal Resource Center in SF. Elizabeth, a Special Projects Volunteer, worked closely with Andrew on many of ILRC’s summer projects.
