What work did you do with the WGD program?
"I was an intern with the WGD program, and my work was primarily educational. I edited and conducted research for a paper, which will be submitted to a refereed journal, on a Peanut Innovation Lab program in Uganda. I also completed a significant amount of supporting research for various WGD endeavors, such as compiling literature reviews on banana beer production in Uganda and gender in Cambodia."
"My primary academic interest is gender, so I want to go to grad school to further my understanding of and involvement with gender issues, perhaps as they apply to international development. I am particularly interested in East Africa, so I would love to live or work there in the future if possible."
