Class of 2018
This summer, Ismini had the opportunity to intern with the Metrics & Evaluation department at the National Geographic Society. She helped run both quantitative and qualitative data analysis on a range of National Geographic's initiatives, including conservation projects and clean energy technology grants, education programs, and their annual Explorers Festival. She learned so much about the diversity of work and diligence that goes into running a nonprofit organization with such a cherished global brand, and had a truly inspirational and engaging experience all the while. She was fortunate to meet and work with some of the most brilliant, creative, and innovative minds behind science, exploration, photojournalism, and wildlife conservation.
