Our sister, Vanessa Cardenas has been very busy lately kicking butt in school and working to change the world! At the end of the school year she was hand-selected by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences Dean for her prestigious scholarship as one of the 7 best students in the whole college in terms of academics, community service and leadership. With an academic record like hers, we are not surprised that she will be heading to Oxford next fall for her second term abroad at the prestigious university! But don't think she is just sitting around soaking up the sun before she leaves. During the summer Vanessa is working as an Early Warning Analyst Intern for Genocide Watch, in addition to her position as the Director of Public Relations for OPEN International, a non-profit committed to providing quality education, sustainability, and successful economic outcomes to children in rural Senegal. If you would like to check out some of the projects she is working on, please feel free to explore the Open International or Genocide Watch websites to the right.
