Introducing the Class of 2013 First-Year Fellows

The Rockefeller Center congratulates the following members of the Class on 2013 on their selection into the First-Year Fellow program, and acknowledges the First-Year Fellow mentors, whose dedication and support make this program possible. 

Trevelyan Wing ’13 Selected as a US delegate to the UN Global Youth Summit

Trevelyan Wing '13 has recently been selected by the U.S. State Department as a delegate to the UN Global Youth Summit in Costa Rica this September.  The Summit will bring together 500 young people from around the world to discuss global priorities and challenges, and contribute their voices as world leaders prepare to determine the Post-2015 UN Development Agenda. The Summit will produce a policy statement that will be presented by the President of Costa Rica to the UN General Assembly at the end of September.

With a passion to pursue a career in international affairs, Trevelyan has participated in several programs at the Rockefeller Center. He was a Small Group Facilitator for the Management and Leadership Development Program and was supported by Rocky for his Fall 2011 internship at the US Department of State in Paris, France.

Congratulations from the Rockefeller Center, Trevelyan!

Rocky Senior Spotlight: Paul Strauch '13

After visiting on Dartmouth's Dimensions weekend, I knew that I had to come here. My formal introduction to the Rockefeller Center occurred Freshman winter when I took Professor Shaiko's Introduction to Public Policy (PBPL 5) course. The course cemented my interest in the practical applications of what I was studying as a Government major and encouraged me to apply to internships in Washington DC that summer. With the assistance of Rockefeller Internship funding, I lived in DC to intern on Capitol Hill the summer after my freshman year. I worked in the office of Representative Frank Pallone, who chairs the Congressional Caucus on Armenian Issues.

My decision to come to Dartmouth was not something I planned. I applied to many schools as a senior in high school and only started choosing after I received admission. When I came to Dimensions at Dartmouth, I was struck by the picturesque campus, the focus on undergraduate education, and the programs at the Rockefeller Center. I knew from reading and hearing about Rocky programs that I wanted to be involved with the Rockefeller Center during my time at Dartmouth.

Rocky Senior Spotlight: Kali Montecalvo '13

The main reason why I chose to attend Dartmouth was the sense of community that I felt here. From my first campus visit, to my admissions interviewer, to the alum that came to my house after I had been accepted to give me a Dartmouth t-shirt, everyone seemed so warm and inviting and genuinely seemed to care about one another. This was the type of community that I wanted to become a part of for the next four years and beyond.

Senior Profile: Kali Montecalvo '13

“Reflecting back on my past four years at Dartmouth, it is clear that Rocky had such a large and wonderful impact on nearly every aspect of my time at Dartmouth. Through the center, I have grown academically, personally, and professionally. It has made me a better leader, more informed, and a more well-rounded person.”

Rockefeller Leadership Fellow Sarah Marie-Hopf '13 Combats Food Insecurity with the Dartmouth Food Connection

Sarah-Marie Hopf '13, a current Rockefeller Leadership Fellow, was recently profiled on Dartmouth Now for her work in establishing the Dartmouth Food Connection with Katherine Burns '13. The Dartmouth Food Connection, along with Dartmouth Dining Services, works to educate the Dartmouth community about food insecurity in the Upper Valley and helps to raise funds and food donations for Willing Hands through meal swipes and food drives.

The Dartmouth Food Connection continues to grow each year and has raised $11,000 for Willing Hands to date.  The "Swipe for Hunger" events, awareness campaigns and food drops have enabled Willing Hands to distribute food to people in need to various organizations throughout the Upper Valley.

Senior Profile: Grace Hart '13

“This internship was also valuable for me as I prepare for my career after Dartmouth. I will be attending Yale Law School next year with the hope of pursuing a career in criminal justice policy, and I believe my experiences with the public policy minor and Rockefeller Center programs have given me a solid foundation for this career path.” 

 

Rockefeller Student Profile Highlights: Michael Sanchez '13

During the break, we are taking the time to appreciate the many student program assistants and students of the Policy Research Shop that help the Rockefeller Center run smoothly. Without the support and time of these students, many of our public programs would not harbor the same impact and outreach that currently exists for Dartmouth students. This series of posts will document the daily tasks of these students, what they do, and anything else they care to share about their experiences. Today we have Michael Sanchez, a member of the class of 2013 pursuing an Economics Modified with Public Policy and a Government Minor.

What are you involved in on campus?
I have been working for the PRS for a little over 2 years, including one term for class credit, and have worked on about 8 different projects. I am also a member of the investment committee for the Dartmouth Investment and Philanthropy Program (DIPP). For a little over two years I have been a member of Zeta Psi fraternity, where I currently serve as the social chair.
