Also, earlier this month, MPI released "International Protection for a Newly Surfacing Refugee Community," which reports on refugees who have been persecuted because of their sexual orientation.

Hi Sarah,Thank you very much for your comment. I did not pusure internships while in high school. I was in my high school's marching band, and that took up a large portion of my time. I was also involved in my local student chapter of People to People International, an international non-profit. When applying for college, tell your story. Whether you have an internship, volunteer your time, or take part in an after-school club, your activities will show the schools to which you are applying who you are as an individual. When choosing my majors, I looked very closely at what I could accomplish in my four years as a student. I started Lafayette College as an International Affairs major, which consisted of three classes in Government & Law, History, Economics and Foreign Languages. When choosing my second major, I looked at either Government & Law, History, Economics or Foreign Languages because I was already taking classes in those areas. To complete my second major, I only needed to take an additional seven courses. My interest in Government & Law came from my attending City Council meetings in Easton, where Lafayette College is located.If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at my email address, .
