My name is Rachel Vullo and I am a senior Political Science and Cultural Studies double major at Villanova University. I have just been accepted as a student ambassador with the Carnegie Council. I am hoping to follow the blog posts and information posted on Global Ethics Network as a means to stay updated on the Council's project. It will help me decide, as a student ambassador, which events I would like to attend and what my real passions are in international relations.
