Khadeja Javed, double-major in MES and IRG, completed internship at Pakistan Permanent Mission to the United Nations

Khadeja Javed, an undergraduate student double-majoring in Middle Eastern Studies and International Relations & Global Studies, recently completed a 2-month internship with the Pakistan Permanent Mission to the United Nations in New York City. Hear what she has to say about the exciting experience: “It is safe to say it’s been an incredibly fun but challenging experience. While I worked as a representative of the Pakistani Mission, most of my research, reports and projects were focused in the third committee on Human Rights, Humanitarian Affairs and Social Matters, which meant I got to work in the field that I’m most interested in pursuing once I graduate. I honestly feel like I’ve learned a lot about not only what I see myself doing in the future but also the kind of person I want to be and the kind of work I want to help bring into the world.” Congratulations Khadeja!
