News & Events

The Belizean unions strike of 2005 brings back mixed memories for a graduate student, Elena Smith, who played a key role in the national uprising. She remembers police stationed outside her home, being shot at with rubber bullets, but also the virtue in fighting for educators.

“It was a dangerous time, but it was something we needed to do as teachers and as citizens,” said Ms. Smith.

John Kerry, a position she secured thanks to Career Services' Shadow a Legislator Program, where students trail an official at the Massachusetts Statehouse for a day. Her new job recently brought her to President Obama's rally in New Hampshire, where she met the presidential candidate. Pretty good for someone who was never one for politics before the shadow program sparked her interest just last semester.
