Hear from Previous Student Ambassadors

"I became an ambassador for N-D because it gave me a platform to voice my opinions and experiences as an expat living in France during a time of crisis and political turmoil -- the Paris terror attacks of November 2015. It's rare to find an outlet that will find value in the words of a 17-year-old student, but N-D is unique because it seeks out perspectives of youth on contentious issues. When I first received news of the opportunity, I leapt at it."
Student at John Hopkins Digital Media Center
"Being a student ambassador at N-D helped me grow by giving me a platform to engage with other students on international topics while also helping me further develop and educate my own views. This experience was crucial in developing my later academic pursuits within international affairs."
Student at Georgetown University
"Being a student ambassador for N-D taught me the importance of putting my work in context. Of course, it´s important to pursue relevant stories and interviews abroad, but it´s also crucial to communicate why they matter. Today, there is more media than ever to consume, and it can feel overwhelming to stay informed. This is the kind of work that can change peoples' perspective, and as a writer, I've learned a lot from reporting on, writing about and understanding the context of complex international issues."
