International political economy major Sofía Abreu (SFS’21) recently shared thoughts on her experience as an Idol Family Fellow during this particularly turbulent summer. Abreu, a first-generation immigrant from Venezuela, is preparing to start her final year at Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service—and looking to build her skill set for the job market.
Made possible by a $5 million gift from the Idol Family Foundation, the Idol Family Fellowship Program provides first-generation and low-income undergraduates with financial and programmatic support as they participate in summer internships. This summer, the fellowship has enabled Abreu to do remote work as a debt and fiscal governance intern at the Emerging Markets Investors Alliance, a nonprofit headquartered in New York.
Watch a video interview with Abreu below and read more about her experience as the co-student director for this year’s Fellows.
