Undergraduate Student, University of Virginia
I am a third year student at UVa double majoring in Foreign Affairs and Economics. This upcoming spring I will finish my undergrad degree and begin a 1-year MA Program at UVa in Religion, Politics, and Conflict. I've been working at the financial papers for just over a year, primarily doing data entry. Aside from working at the papers, I play rugby for UVa, work at Splendora's Gelato, and I'm an Emergency Planning Intern at the Office of Emergency Management Services. My visualization project for the papers is a deeper look at 18th Century medicine and how people at that time understood treatment for various ailments, as can be seen through items found in the financial papers. I enjoy working at the papers because of the flexibility both in scheduling work around my classes and in working on specific aspects of the project that I find interesting.
