Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I am a Senior at CUNY Queens College studying Political Science with a concentration in Law and Politics and minoring in Economics. During my years in college, I've been involved in Student government, and many clubs as well as interning in many public service positions such as the Mayor's Office, State Senate etc. I applied for the Carnegie Council Student Ambassador program to learn about the work that they do and how I may be able to contribute as a student ambassador and make connections with like-minded students and mentors in the process.
