How do I tie my passion for rural development and human rights issues altogether in a global context? ICS is the answer I found here at Duke. ICS offers the flexibility to understand the interconnectedness of the world from several different points of view, while providing an opportunity to develop one's deeper interest in a specific region within the context of culture and politics. Through ICS, I have spent my semester abroad in Udaipur, India and Beijing, China, conducting research on the achievement gap amongst rural students and studying government policies that address health issues in migrant communities. This summer, I am coming back to Beijing in order to work with migrant children. I seriously can't wait!
