Deirdre Quinn

Class of 2017, Major in International Studies

“I had a wonderful experience interning with the World Tourism Organization during the 71st session of the General Assembly. I was able to work with UNWTO on their draft resolution on sustainable tourism, as well as attend meetings of the second committee. Being a part of a specialized agency I had access to all UN meetings and in my free time I was able to attend meetings on issues that interested me on various issues such as the refugee crisis and women’s rights. I got first hand knowledge on the Sustainable Development Goals and now have a greater understanding of the work that goes on in the United Nations every day.”

“Deirdre has undertaken a near miraculous series of NYC-based and international internships. She worked on women’s international human rights with MADRE, international relations with the American Iranian Council and grassroots activism with the Urban Justice Center. In India she created a music program for children, and she worked full-time in the United Nations World Tourism Organization during the General Assembly – all while getting top grades in her classes.”
