Mark Daniels ’19 is from Topsfield, Massachusetts and plans to pursue a major in Government with potential minors in either Public Policy or Geography while at Dartmouth.

During his first-year summer, Mark interned in the Language Programming Office at Voice of America under the mentorship of John Lippman ’71, the department’s Deputy Director. During the summer, Mark was part of a team that created impact models for 13 different counties.

“The most rewarding part of my fellowship experience was meeting and working with a range of different people throughout VOA,” says Mark. “Because I did a variety of tasks during the summer, I had to collaborate with people across divisions in the agency: Public Relations, Special Events, the Latin American Division, and many others in addition to the Language Programming office where I was placed. Everyone I worked with was eager to help me learn about what they did and how I could help, allowing me to have diverse experiences week to week.”

On campus, he is a staff editor of the World Outlook Undergraduate Journal of International Affairs and works on the Operations and Marketing team for The Dartmouth newspaper. After graduation, Mark plans to pursue a career in government or Foreign Service.
