Thanks to funding from Yale, I was able to spend my summer in Kenya, working at the NGO of a fellow classmate. Having spent seven years in the Army before coming to Yale, it was important to me to use my internship as a means of broadening my understanding of international relations beyond a military perspective.  The month I spent in Migori County, coaching entrepreneurial youth groups on ways to improve their business practices, was the perfect opportunity to expand my aperture while complementing my academic studies.
