Majida Halaweh, 2019, History

The goal of my project was to develop a database of background information to help develop a policy platform for the Environmental Defense Fund. My primary responsibilities focused on researching a variety of different topics that were critical to understanding policy issues, as well as creating presentations of this information. I learned much about the function of an environmental nonprofit organization, and the important role that these organizations play in influencing policymakers. This experience allowed me to explore a possible research career and honed my abilities to put complicated information into an easy-to-understand format.
