2019 International Human Rights Fellow

Hannah Pierce
BA International Studies; BA Political Science ‘20
Perseus Strategies, LLC
Washington, D.C.  

My fellowship in Washington, D.C. was instrumental in preparing me for a career in human rights, as it allowed me to go beyond the scope of the Michigan classroom, apply my knowledge and work experience, and become a part of the solutions I’ve learned about. During my time at Perseus Strategies, LLC, I was astonished by the both the amount and the importance of the work that I did, from drafting House of Representative resolutions, contributing to “white paper” reports, or attending meetings on Capitol Hill. Additionally, I gained valuable insight while networking and meeting people from all different careers, helping me to gain a better understanding of the complex political world. With the experience, I hope to utilize my newly acquired skills to make tangible change after graduation and ultimately make an impact in the world.
