AUD's Summer Team

Far from surrendering to the heat, our Nationís Capital always seems to thrive in the summer, when interns invade governmental, non-governmental, profit, and non-profit institutions.

AUDís office is no exception to this rule. This summer, two Ukrainian students and one American student have already joined our team.

Ms. Christina Bache, a graduate student in Conflict Resolution at American University, will be in charge of our Public Relations and Marketing. We are confident that her outstanding personality, organization, communication, and advocacy skills will contribute to the development of our organization.

Mr. Maksym Kovalov, a Muskie Fellow currently pursuing a Masterís degree in International Affairs at Oklahoma State University, and Mr. Vitaliy Motsok, a Junior Faculty Development Program Fellow from the Chernivtsi National University in Ukraine, are working full time in our office. Their cultural and academic backgrounds bring to AUD a fresh prospective on Euro-Atlantic issues. Vitaliy and Maksym will also help us strengthen our relations with Ukrainian schools as part of our Global Education Initiative.

Our interns are considered to be a part of AUD. We are happy to provide them with an interesting work experience while introducing them to the concepts of Clarence Streit. In addition, they bring new ideas, dynamism, and enthusiasm to our organization.
