As part of continuing growth, INESAD and Development Roast are bringing on board a host of new interns. Join us in welcoming our newest addition: Jillian Cordes.
Jillian going into her last year of undergraduate studies at Northwestern University in Illinois, United States. She is studying Economics and Global Health and enjoys the different perspectives the two fields bring. Jillian has done a lot of international travel but it was her trip to Haiti a few years ago that really sparked her interest in international development and health inequalities.
She spent the past summer studying in Santiago, Chile taking classes at the local university and working with a grassroots health organization that focused on promoting community empowerment and raising awareness of health risks. Jillian is excited to be working with INESAD and to read and write about the various issues faced in Latin America. She hopes it will help her to better understand the complexity of the development issues faced in the region. Whenever Jillian gets some free time, it is typically spent either swimming or sailing.
