We have a whole new crop of staff and interns joining the Nourishing the Planet team this summer. Today, meet Graham Salinger.
Graham Salinger is a rising senior at American University where he studies political science and sociology. He has interned with the United States Department of Agriculture and became interested in international development when traveling to Colombia in 2009. He specifically became interested in water security and environmental protection, during his time in the Middle East, where he worked with Friends of the Earth Middle East. He spent last summer teaching English in Hungary and touring Europe, and he spent the fall studying abroad in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and he looks forward to returning there in the future.
Next year, he hopes to join the Peace Corps and build on the valuable experience gained as an intern working with the Nourishing the Planet team. He looks forward to researching agricultural innovations around the world that nourish people and the planet. In his free time he loves following Chicago sports teams, exploring DC, and finding new opportunities to travel.
