Name: Christine Ostrosky
Graduation: Expected 2017
Major: International Studies (Middle East concentration)
Minor: Arabic

I chose this path because I find it useful and interesting, as well as suitable for my professional and personal goals. In the future, I want to work for an international humanitarian organization or NGO (such as UNESCO, UNICEF, UNDP, World Ed, Women’s Global Education Project, etc.), specifically focusing on increasing the availability and accessibility of education to women. Women’s education is the single most important factor that positively influences developing countries and provides more opportunities not only for women, but also for their children, which triggers a lasting generational effect. I believe women’s education is vitally important to the future of the world. The areas that most require this development are in the Middle East and Africa, which is why I have chosen to focus my studies there.
