  • 2nd Year
  • MA International Administration

My name is Danielle Kerchmar and I am a second year MA candidate in International Administration. My undergraduate degree is in International and Global Studies with a minor in Political Science from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. While at UNCG, I had the opportunity to study abroad in both Finland and Uruguay, which led me to pursue a volunteer position in the United States Peace Corps in Ukraine. While in Ukraine, I started to pursue the Josef Korbel School, the decision being highly based on the 'quarter'-discount for Peace Corps volunteers and the information sessions that I had with student Piper Frode. Piper and the enthusiastic experiences I heard from Peace Corps Voulunteers in Ukraine who had studied at the Josef Korbel School convinced me that the school was an absolute perfect match for me.

Currently, I am an Events and Fundraising Intern at Project C.U.R.E., the world's largest distributor of excess medical supplies to countries in need. However, after this internship ends in December 2013, I will pursue an opportunity to work as Colorado District 7 Representative Angela William's personal and research aide or with the Green Grant organization that provides micro-grants to various small projects in countries around the world. Aside from classes and internships, I am also a member of Future International Administration Professionals student group and I am the Social Action Vice-President of the Peace Corps Student Group. Within both of these student-run groups, I have the opportunity to work and make connections with like-minded student professionals and to make connections through the organization of social actions.
