Working at the United Nations Development Program
The Global Engagement Program has played a large role in my career, which is one of the main reasons that I have the pleasure of working at the United Nations Development Program. Looking back, the program was very demanding but it prepared me for my work environment and empowered me to constantly push myself. One example that comes to mind was the quick turn over of topics for our weekly discussions. Moving quickly from topic to topic allowed to me to quickly understand and incorporated new information in my work which is something that is very useful in the work that I am currently doing.

The work that I am doing now involves using the qualitative data gathered for the Regional Human Development Report (HDR) to create a conversation with the quantitative date from the HDR. This work has me moving quickly in between various topics and constantly researching new information to incorporate into my work. The Global Engagement Program prepared me and allowed me to be able to do this level of work.
