In spring 2011 Nadia participated in the Rutgers Model Congress, affiliated with the Institute for Domestic and International Affairs, as part of the logistics and administration team. The main theme of the conference explored the idea of the United States as an international actor. In the summer of 2011, she interned with the YOUTH Organization in the United Nations, attending various UN meetings about current world issues such as democracy and human rights, arms trafficking, and post-conflict development. After graduation, Nadia plans to continue her studies in the areas of human rights, conflict resolution, and sustainable development. She believes in the value of promoting human rights and dialogue as a pathway towards a more peaceful society.
