Global Engagement in My Future Career

I would like to work for the United Nations one day. I haven’t decided whether I would like to pursue a career as a Humanitarian Aid Officer or in the Legal Department, but I know that I would like to work for the United Nations for several reasons.

Aside from the fact that I am very passionate about global issues that affect innocent citizens of many areas of the world, I am aware that the United Nations’ noteworthy efforts has arguably decreased over the years, and I would like to be part of a revival that will benefit many still struggling peoples around the world.

My involvement with the Global Engagement Fellows will prove that I have a global interest in not only global political affairs but also in the cultures of people who live in countries very different from my own. The fact that I will have travelled abroad and will have had the experiences that are instrumental in opening one’s mind to the thoughts and feelings of others will also certainly help me secure a career at the UN. I think that the Global Engagement Fellows program will be very impactful in my career pursuits because it shows that even before entering college that I have been passionate about global issues, and that it has been a lifelong interest.

I want to travel to areas where the people are underrepresented on a global scale. I want to be able to say that I have gone and have insight that will no doubt be an asset in globally centered career.
