During my time at the University of Pittsburgh I endeavored to help build a community among Global Studies students by creating a platform through which we could meet and discuss current global affairs. I co-founded the Global Affairs Club, which was active beginning in my Junior year, to address this need and contribute to developing the Global Studies student community. The club organized discussions concerning relevant current global affairs and invited faculty to help facilitate the discussion. Some of the topics we covered in our meetings were the treatment of Uighurs in Xinjing Province in China, the prospects of the Iran Nuclear Deal, and the potential detriments of participating in voluntourism, among others. The meetings provided a community to collaboratively discuss these topics and collectively come to a better understanding of the events shaping global affairs. I served as President of the club in my senior year.
