Roxanne Roman, Global China Studies Major. Study Away Site: Washington DC
Roxanne Roman, interned at the White House while studying away in Washington DC in Spring 2016. Roxanne is a Class of 2017 student majoring in Global China Studies.
Madeline P. Farquharson, Humanities Major. Study Away Site: Accra, Ghana
I worked with a school called Noyaa, which is located in the James Town beach front of Accra.
José Antonio Cabrera Sánchez, Economics Major. Study Away Site: Washington DC
For a long time I had wanted to explore working at an Embassy or a Consulate, but I never imagined I would have the opportunity to work at such a vibrant Embassy, and even more so during the current US political pandemonium. I am not only learning about my country's role in the international arena, but also about US politics and Spain's growing bilateral relations with the United States. Everyday I need to work both in Spanish and English. Although constantly changing languages gets a little tiring, it is much more engaging than I imagined. I translate documents, look up information, organize data, prepare documents that get sent to Madrid, and follow some key issues very closely. For example, I am paying special attention to migration issues, focusing both on the Syrian refugee crisis and the growing Cuban migration through Central American into the US.
Xiaoyue Gong, Double Major in Honors Math and Interactive Media Arts. Study Away Site: New York
This semester, I got a job as a teaching assistant for the Web Development and Programming class under the Computer Science department at Courant. This position is perfect because an international student like me wouldn't be able to legally work outside of campus, and being a TA helps me brush up on my web-developing skills. Meanwhile, after finding out about the abundance of entrepreneurship opportunities at NYU, I just couldn't get rid of the idea of building a startup upon a tech product I built last semester at NYUShanghai. I invited three friends to participate in two entrepreneurship competitions with me. Our team (Yuting Gong, Yu Zhou and Andrew Chee) was recently awarded Best Overall Venture in the Reynolds Changemaker Challenge. Read more here!

Veronica Hernandez, Global China Studies Major. Study Away Site: Buenos Aires
I chose to spend a semester in Argentina to improve my Spanish and fulfill my art history minor. I also am taking a course called Internship Seminar & Fieldwork that allows me to intern at a local company for credit. This semester I am interning at a marketing and creative agency called Collagelab. My responsibilities include conducting research and brainstorming ideas for ad campaigns and promotional events. In addition, I also help organize some of the street art events they also sponsor. The best part of this opportunity is I get to do all this work in Spanish and practice my foreign language skills.
Roman Chen, Self Designed Honors Major in Gender Politics. Study Away Site: Paris
Taking time to understand a culture is just as consuming as working a full-time job. In Paris, I read French literature on the metro, follow the Syrian immigration issue in the news and in anthropology class, and, make my best attempt to speak French with the locals. This newfound curiosity for French culture has definitely made a shift of my future plans, as I look forward to going to graduate school. After consulting my anthropology professor for advice, I've started researching programs such as a Comparative Human Development degree in the U.S.
Noel Konagai, Self-Designed Honors Major. Study Away Site: New York
NYU Shanghai student Noel Konagai recently presented at the NYU Global Engagement Symposium in New York on November 20. Noel is a self designed honors major, with a focus in Autocracy and Democracy Studies. The global engagement symposium is a joint initiative between the offices at NYU with the aim to curate internationally focused undergraduate research projects, exchange internship experiences and encourage community engagement. Noel’s presentation was based on his summer research that was funded by DURF (Dean’s Undergraduate Research Fund) at NYU Shanghai. Noel spent five days over the summer in Kyiv, Ukraine presenting his work: “Reports of Euromaidan: Comparative Analysis of Russia Today and Euronews.” His goal was to explore what it means for news to remain impartial through the analysis of two European television networks -- the state-funded Russia Today, and the multilingual pan-european Euronews.
