    Hello all! My name is Jennifer Triplett, and I am a senior from Jackson, Mississippi. I am currently majoring in Classical Studies and International Development with a minor in Latin American Studies and expect to graduate in December of 2012. After I graduate, I plan on going to graduate school (probably law school) after taking some time off to go live in Chile. I would love a career in international development that focuses on improving health indicators in South America.

  • julianguelig

    Hey everyone! My name is Julian Guelig and I’m a junior from Wellsboro, PA (more or less the boonies of PA). I’m majoring in Economics and international development. I am planning to study abroad in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil next semester, which I can’t wait for. I’m not sure what I would like to do after graduation, but I will most likely look into the Peace Corps. So far there are many sectors of international development that I could see myself working in, I’ll just have to wait and see what happens!
