Major: International Relations I made two major contributions: one was writing a number of articles that were published on COHA's website. The other was the administrative compilation of potential subscriber data data of libraries and universities all across the country, as well as internationally for COHA to reach out to for distribution of our published paper: the Washington Report on the Hemisphere. I collected and compiled information on over 230 outside organizations for this project. Besides this, I also edited other interns' papers, both personally and as part of larger editing groups.
Major: International Relations As a research and development intern, my main task was to research Unaccompanied Refugee Minors, Unaccompanied Alien Children, and the Cuban and Haitian refugee background. With my research, I created both power point presentations and general information worksheets on these communities. For my research I primarily utilized print and online sources, however, I also conducted in-person interviews with individuals working with or who are part of, the communities I was researching. Once my research was completed and reviewed by the internship coordinator, I presented my research during a professional development workshop with local school officials. In addition to research, I tutored refugee youth and conducted public relations work for the center.
