Sam Nunn School Intern Spotlight – Elvina Ganbarova

Elvina Ganbarova is a second year graduate student, pursuing a master’s degree. Born and raised in Kazakhstan, and Azeri by ethnicity, she lived in Azerbaijan for a couple of years before coming to the United States. Currently, she is the president of INTAGO (International Affairs Graduate Organization); it is a position that allows her to be actively involved in making sure that other graduate students in the program have a successful and fun academic career. Her own areas of interest include development/humanitarian causes and international security. She recently held an internship with the southeast regional office of UNICEF that allowed her to put her academic focus into practical experience. We asked her a few questions about how her time at Tech helped her succeed at her UNICEF internship.
