October 2019 – present
University Center for International Studies: Global Hub
The Global Hub is a new space on Pitt’s campus which serves as a one-stop shop for students looking to incorporate globally-minded or internationally-focused programs into their education. A variety of student organizations and academic departments host programs here including language conversation tables, drop-in advising hours, study abroad information sessions, speakers, musicians, and many more. The Hub also has interactive digital screens: one which helps you to find opportunities that fit with your interests and one that displays video footage and facts about a different country every hour. As a Global Hub Ambassador, my main job is to be present in this space to engage with students who visit the Hub and to connect them with international opportunities whether that be a certificate program or a study abroad trip. I also help organize the logistics for the programs that happen at the Global Hub, and I help to create new content for the digital screens. This job has really enhanced my global education at Pitt because I have gotten to interact with a wide variety of people and I have gotten to share my own experiences with them.
