dc.description.abstractWhen I decided I wanted to major in economics, I felt relieved. I would live a normal life and have a normal job. The path of studying economics felt stable to me. Normal would be far from anything I was ever accustomed to, but it would be a change I could come to accept. My interest in economics led me to interning at the Daraja Academy, located in the center of Kenya. I worked as a business administrative intern at a residential high school for girls. Developing an online point of sale, researching potential partner organizations, and creating data entries were all useful real-life tools and tasks I would need in order to be successful in the field of economics. Although economics led me to the Daraja Academy, the Daraja Academy led me to a place where I realized I want to do more. I want to have more and create more than just a professional life as a normal economist. In my presentation, I will speak about my experience in Kenya, how working in this field helped me discover exactly what I want to do, and led me to a path far away from economics.

dc.description.panabstractEducation is found inside and outside of the classroom, which is something the four members of this panel, Ariel, Sabrina, Rachel, and Kathryn, will discuss as part of their reflection on their summer experience. Our experiences stretch from basketball courts in Vietnam to riding arenas in Reno, management in Kenya, and teaching in Argentina. Viewers will take away from our panel a broader understanding of different cultures, self-reflection, community involvement and how one internship experience can shape future career aspirations. Reflecting on their internships this summer, these panelists gained insight into how the work they did helped to shape how they wish to proceed in their future career aspirations.
