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 #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.

New SIPA Student (photo/story) Series 2014

Summer officially begins this weekend but school is out and for most, summer is already here with lazy days and mild summer temperatures.

If you are a follower of the SIPA Admissions Blog, you will know that each summer we run a series of new students’ photos.  Last year we included stories about their summer adventure prior to beginning classes at SIPA in the fall.  Blog readers have informed us that they like seeing/reading what our students are up to each summer.  Well, it’s that time of year again when we make a request for submissions.

All you NEW SIPA STUDENTS, we encourage you to submit pictures (travel photos, artistic photos, event photos) to post and share on the Blog.  If you would rather provide a short post about what you are doing this summer before enrolling at SIPA, we’ll be happy to share that too.  We typically post 3 photos per student so the maximum number to send along for consideration should be no more than four.  If you are sending a story about your summer activities, please limit it to five paragraphs.

To participate, simply send along your photos or story as attachments to this address: sipa_new@columbia.edu.  Please include the subject: 2014 Blog submission.   We will try to post everyone’s submission but it may take a few weeks/months (depending on how many people are willing to share their experience) for us to share all of them this summer.

If you plan to submit (and experience at least 24-hours of fame), please include the following when submitting your pictures/story:

  • Your Name
  • Your Degree Program (MIA, MPA, MPA-DP)
  • Where the photo was taken (if submitting a photo)
  • A brief description of the photo (if submitting a photo)

Looking forward to receiving your submissions.
