We continue our 20th anniversary intern alum spotlights with Christina Ritter, Marist ‘14. Christina majored in Psychology/Special Education with a minor in Hudson River Valley Studies and a Concentration in Public History at Marist. She also holds an MA in Emergency Management and Homeland Security. Today, she is a 4th grade teacher in Arlington Central School District.

Christina describes how experiences with HRVI have helped her educational and professional pursuits since graduation:

"I credit my experience at HRVI with helping me not only develop my professional interests, research and writing skills, and networking experiences, but I attribute my ability to stand out in a sea of potential candidates to the unique experiences I was given through HRVI. I have been on countless successful interviews, for both careers and graduate schools, and some of the first questions I receive are always about my publication credits, unique minor, workshop participation, etc. By finding my place at HRVI, in the exciting and overwhelming sea of college-based opportunities, I forged an identity as a student and professional that helped me distinguish myself long after graduation, and gave me a confidence in myself and my work that I may not have otherwise found."
