New SIPA Student Photo Series #5

Orientation is in a few weeks so we’re going to share more of the New SIPA Student photos before all the new students arrive on campus and ask what happened to their submission — oops.

Today we have two submissions to share with you.  The first one is from Bartłomiej Walentyński, MPA 2016.  When you meet him call him Bartek.

Each year a student organization, which he was a member during his studies at Warsaw School of Economics, organizes a conference devoted to emerging markets (Emerging Markets Business Conference). This year they hosted this event at the Warsaw Stock Exchange and hosted students from Peru and India. It was great time to discuss many aspects of economic development not only with the students from different countries but also with prominent speakers (CEOs of banks, rating agencies, consultancies etc.).

Our second submission comes from Brazil.  Eloy Henrique Saraivade Oliveira, MPA 2016.  He had an opportunity to enjoy the World Cup in his home country and cheer for Brazil!

The below pictures were taken during the semifinals in Belo Horizonte (his home city).  It was a great time to get to meet new people and enjoy the party!

New SIPA Student Photo Series #4

Our newest photographs submission comes from Adriana Popa, an incoming SIPA student (MIA 2016).

Originally from Romania, Adriana has lived, worked and studied on three continents and graduated with High Honors from Swarthmore College.  Upon graduation, she was awarded a Davis Project for Peace grant in India, where she worked for the summer of 2012. Currently residing in New York City, and working for the Global Institute at KKR, she is buying her time in the “real world” before returning to academia.

New SIPA Student Photo Series #3

As an entrepreneur and consultant, Jean Suhas has traveled across Europe, South America, North America, Asia, North Africa, and Sub-Saharan Africa.

But what he encountered in Hanoi, Vietnam was worthy of a photo submission.  You don’t see one of these every day.

Jean is an incoming Master of International Affairs candidate.

New SIPA Student Photo Series #2

Today’s submission comes from Karen Mustiga, MPA 2016.

Karen was born in Lima, Peru and immigrated to the U.S. in the 1990s.  Her disposition for public service and helping out the less fortunate comes from her roots and keen awareness to third-world poverty, political turmoil, and immigrant experience.  She plans to concentrate her studies in Urban and Social Policy.  We look forward to welcoming Karen to SIPA this fall.

 

Mallorca 2014

Photo taken in Mallorca:  A photo of my friend Tom and I in Mallorca this past May. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting most of Spain while teaching English in Madrid and Mallorca was definitely a trip worth taking. As a Florida native, I was impressed by the breathtakingly beautiful beaches and stunning cliffs.

New SIPA Student Photo/Story Series #1

We kick off the 2014 new student summer photo (and story) series today with a photo submission from incoming MIA student, Supriya Kumar.  Ms. Kumar, a global nomad who has lived in five countries on three continents will be joining SIPA this fall.

Here is a photo of my friend Susan and I at the Taj Mahal this June. Words cannot really describe the overwhelming beauty of this structure – it is quite surely a sight that has to be seen in person to really appreciate, and I’m so grateful that I was lucky to pay it a visit this summer.
