Alexandra Kassler, M.A. Food Studies

Bioversity International, Italy

Interning at Bioversity International was a great experience. For three months I interned with the Forest Genetic Resources research domain as a communications intern, helping the domain update their webpages and assist with the production of other communications materials. This internship helped enhance my communications skills and provided me the opportunity to work and be trained in a professional environment for an international organization. For a younger Food Studies graduate student, this was an indispensable experience! Being able to work from the communications side has allowed me to gain a different perspective and given me an idea of what a future career in an international research organization could be like.
