ABOUT OUR SPECIAL GUESTS

Christian Correa

Christian, a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, wants to use his Master in International Relations at IE to gain a more nuanced understanding of the intersection of public, private and nonprofit approaches to problem-solving that will help advance a career in corporate responsibility, policy and government. Enthusiastic and thrilled at the opportunity offered by the Eisenhower Global Scholars Program, Christian worked as a Fellow at DLA Piper in Chicago and as a communications intern at Precision Strategies, a consultant firm in Washington, D.C. He wants to focus on the structural inequalities in health care in the United States that have resulted in the disproportionately high death tolls for African-Americans, Hispanics and other minorities from the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

Gina Siedow

“I have served as an American ambassador by sharing American traditions and values with my community in exchange for a deeper understanding of Senegalese culture,” she wrote gratefully of her experience in the Peace Corps in West Africa. In addition to her Peace Corps service, Regina has worked at the Ann & Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago and as a student assistant during college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Department of Educational Psychology. Regina plans to use her Master degree at IE to help her create a toolkit for immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers that provides resources on topics such as cultural norms, employment assistance and affordable housing options.
