Daniel Douangratdy participated in the annual Model UN conference at Fisher as a high school student, and he credits this experience for inspiring his interest in international studies and becoming a Cardinal. During his undergraduate studies, he majored in international studies with dual minors in Spanish and political science. The strong Fisher network allowed him to gain broad international exposure in his field of interest.

“I am extremely grateful for my study abroad experience in Vienna, Austria which allowed me to intern at the United Nations.” Experiential learning opportunities through community service, study abroad, and internships fueled Douangratdy’s “passion for community engagement both domestically and internationally.”

Now, Douangratdy is a medevac program specialist with the Peace Corps where he is responsible for organizing and coordinating services for medically evacuated volunteers. He also supports program policy guidance and contractor performance monitoring.

He encourages current students to take advantage of all the opportunities Fisher offers. “Interact with fellow alumni and keep in touch with your professors and mentors!”
