I am Maxwell.
Dina Eldawy interned with the Migration Policy Institute while taking courses through the Maxwell-in-Washington D.C. program. She says, “My internship tied directly with the work I did in Syracuse...my action plan addressed English language services for Syracuse refugee communities. It definitely solidified my interest in studying refugee populations and education policy in my graduate studies.”
