Week 2:
Growing Comfortable and Earning Privileges


Arthur Vining Davis Fellow in Adolescent Psychology

Linn County Juvenile Detention Center | Cedar Rapids, Iowa

September 9, 2018 | My second week at detention has been a much different experience from week one. First of all, I’m much more comfortable interacting with residents and staff, and navigating around the building. I’m also growing more familiar with the history and policies of the Center. This has resulted in more frequent interactions and greater respect from […]

Week 6:
Busy and Eventful


Cornell Fellow in Political Science

Global Zero | Washington, D.C.

September 8, 2018 | If any of you have been paying attention to the news, this week has been an eventful one for the United States, to say the least. I feel as though I have whiplash from trying to keep track of the ongoing political events in addition to my responsibilities and assignments in the office. It seems […]

Week 1:
Getting Started at Detention


Arthur Vining Davis Fellow in Adolescent Psychology

Linn County Juvenile Detention Center | Cedar Rapids, Iowa

September 2, 2018 | This first week at the Linn County Juvenile Detention Center (referred to as “the Center”) has been a whirlwind of meeting new people and learning so many new things. I began my first shift with a full tour of the facility. At first glance from the outside, the Center doesn’t look like much, and I […]

Week 5:
Recovery


Cornell Fellow in Political Science

Global Zero | Washington, D.C.

September 1, 2018 | This week the field team has been in recovery mode now that the Action Lab weekend has successfully been completed. Although it was a wonderful experience of learning from the training and other volunteers, I was thoroughly exhausted, along with the rest of the field team. So much so, that we collectively decided to come […]

Week 7:
Give and Take


Cornell Fellow in Ethnobotany

Amazon Learning | Archidona, Ecuador

August 26, 2018 | I went to the Amazon on a gut feeling.  I knew that there were bounties of herbal knowledge to be found there, but didn’t really know how I would be able to apply it later, in the United States.  This internship provided me with the tools to survive (and even thrive) in the Napo province […]

Week 4:
Action Lab


Cornell Fellow in Political Science

Global Zero | Washington, D.C.

August 26, 2018 | As I reach the halfway point of my fellowship and reflect upon the experiences I have gained as a result of this opportunity, I have learned so much about myself and the field of political activism and advocacy. Many of these things lessons have occurred unexpectedly, (as do many things in life) but have proved […]

Week 7:
Staying Busy, Staying Cool


Johnson Fellow in Anthropology & Public Health

Comprehensive Rural Health Project, Jamkhed | Ahmednagar, India

August 26, 2018 | “What can I help with?” This week has been a full, hectic week of transition. The International Programs Manager left on Wednesday, and the other three students left on Thursday; so, in addition to village visits, the fellow and I spent most of our time adjusting to being the last two foreigners on campus. The […]

Week 10:
The End has come


Dimensions Fellow in Orthopedic Research

Children's Hospital Colorado | Aurora, Colorado

August 23, 2018 | Week 10 is finally here. What a ride it’s been! It may have been my last week here at Children’s Colorado, but that did not mean it was easy. On Monday I finally got the stats back for my project. Things went as expected none of our findings were statistically or clinically significant. While this […]

Week 12:
The City of Smiles and a Song of Farewell


August 23, 2018 | Bacolod, Philippines is known as the city of smiles. Every advertisement that has anything to do with this area has the famous Bacolod masks printed on them and is labeled so. I came to this place to attend the 4th Annual Southeast Asian Bat Conference, which is a four-day conference where people from all over […]

Week 13:
Going Home


Slater Fellow in Development and Patron Services

Creede Repertory Theatre | Creede, Colorado

August 23, 2018 | (Featured image photo credit: John Gary Brown) This week was my last week at Creede Repertory Theatre, and that is a bittersweet feeling. I am definitely going to miss CRT and all of my friends here, but I am also very excited to get back to Cornell. This summer has been an amazing experience, one […]
