Destiny Harrison-Griffin

I have recently graduated from the University of Pittsburgh after earning a double major in Africana Studies and Political Science, with concentrations in International Relations and Comparative Politics. Additionally, I obtained a Global Studies Certificate concentrated in Peace, Conflict and Security in order to enhance my cultural competency and the breadth of courses in my major field of study.
