Summer Internship Experience
“Repurposing for Healthier Diets” and “Benchmarking Race Inclusion Diversity in Global Engagement (BRIDGE)”
During the summer, I had the privilege of participating in two internships, one at the World Bank and the other at a global development management consulting firm named Social Impact.
At the World Bank, my primary involvement was with the SAGGL unit, which is the Global Engagement Unit of the Agriculture and Food Global Practice. During my time there, I made significant contributions to the "Repurposing for Healthier Diets" program. My work centered around trade policy, political economy, and data analysis, with a focus on examining how public opinion affects agrifood commodities and their impact on dietary habits. Additionally, I played a role in assessing how trade policies influence consumption trends and the availability of domestic food supplies. As part of this project, I was involved in writing a global paper, creating a policy note that explored digital innovation in agriculture, drafting a concept note, and writing a blog post about "Irrigation in South Asia."
In addition to my work at the World Bank, I also contributed to a survey conducted by Social Impact called BRIDGE 2.0 (Benchmarking Race Inclusion Diversity in Global Engagement), which focuses on diversity and inclusion in the workplace. In this capacity, I assisted in preparing, analyzing, and interpreting the survey data. Through my involvement in this project, I honed my quantitative skills, particularly in using the survey platform Qualtrics, and applied my Stata skills to analyze and interpret survey results. Lastly, I had the opportunity to present the preliminary findings to the organization's CEO and VP.
