AUK welcomes its 21st Dartmouth Intern, Christina Chen, who will be at AUK until late November 2010. Christina will be working in the Division of Sciences & Engineering, Student Life, and on a special project with the Arabian Heritage Project.
Christina Chen, hailing from Irvine, California, is currently in her second year at Dartmouth College. Majoring in Economics modified with Environmental Studies, she is particularly interested in resource management, and the improvement of such to lessen world conflict. This trip to the Middle East offers her a chance to learn about the integral roles natural resources play in some economies, and the effect a depletion of such would have on a country. At Dartmouth, Christina participates in the World Music Percussion Ensemble and studies classical piano independently. Her interests include microfinance and sustainability, thus she participates in Dartmouth's Social Enterprise and Economic Society's Consulting Group and the Environmental Conservation Organization. Christina's trip to Kuwait is an introduction to the region, and area she hopes to have a more permanent connection with in the future.
