My name is Kelly Smits and I am a graduating senior at American University. I am originally from Green Bay, Wisconsin, but made the move to Washington, DC for college. At AU, I am majoring in international studies and minoring in French language. I spent my third year studying abroad at Sciences Po Saint-Germain-en-Laye in Paris, France, where I was able to further my education in international studies by taking classes related to the field in French. Throughout my college career, I have had two internships: the first at ReThink Media and the second at the Arms Control Association. These internship experiences have helped foster my interest in and passion for nuclear disarmament, arms control, and nonproliferation. In fact, this is now the issue set around which I would like to work once I obtain my diploma. I am extremely grateful for the education I have received during my undergraduate years, and while I am sad to see them end, I am filled with excitement about what the future holds!
