Meeting our summer intern: Aberdeen McEvers

Posted on June 6, 2018 by


My name is Aberdeen McEvers. I am a senior at Macalester College and I am majoring in International Studies and Anthropology with a concentration in Human Rights and Humanitarianism. I am very excited to work with IARP this summer! I was attracted to IARP because I am planning on working in a non-profit after college and I wanted to get a better understanding of the everyday work that is involved in running a non-profit. I was attracted to IARP because I wanted to understand the structure of a smaller-scale NGO that focused on a very specific theme. I was also interested in seeing how the personalized, individual approach to reconciliation looked in practice, as I have only ever studied it in classes. I studied abroad in Belgrade, Serbia this past semester and I had the opportunity to work with a local NGO there who partially worked with various refugee groups in Serbia, including a number of Iraqi refugees. I am very interested in connecting the work I did in Serbia with IARP’s work with Iraqi communities in Minnesota and in Iraq itself.
