Bio:

I'm Isabel Geddes, Class of 2020. I was born and raised in New York City and at Oxy I majored in Cognitive Science and minored in Politics. Outside of class I conducted developmental psychology research and had several on campus jobs. I also had two internships with Esperanza Immigrant Rights Project and Children's Defense Fund which informed my interest in working with youth in the justice system. After graduating in May I interned with UNICEF's Public Partnerships Division. after working as a Family Advocate with the Center for family Representation, along with Carmen Tellez class of 2014, I have returned to UNICEF as a Consultant with the Public Partnerships Division.

Career Advice:

Don't underestimate the value of attending networking events or getting coffee with someone - chances are they know someone who knows someone and getting your foot in the door can be a valuable first step toward an internship or job opportunity!
