Alicia Evangelides (Vikalp Women’s Group): Alicia received her BA degree in International Relations and Spanish from Tufts University. She then worked as a Publications and Communications Coordinator for Rotary International, where she co-authored and edited publications international development. At the time of her AP fellowship, Alicia was pursuing a Master of International Affairs degree at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA). After her fellowship Alicia wrote: "I learned a lot about the culture, legal system, and human rights situation in India. I also learned a lot about doing on the ground fieldwork, and about the challenges that come with that. This experience has made me more aware of the challenges facing grassroots NGOs, and of the challenges of putting development and social justice into practice."



A DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN ADVOCACY PROJECT PEACE FELLOW: VIKALP EDITION

26 Jul

When I learned that I had been accepted as a Peace Fellow for The Advocacy Project, I was totally stoked, for a number of reasons. In addition to having the opportunity to do human rights field work in India for the summer, I was going to have a pretty cool title. Peace Fellow. Fellow of Peace. I mean, who doesn’t like peace?

As I shared the news of my summer plans with family and friends, I began to get a lot of questions. What exactly is a Peace Fellow? What will you be doing? While I did not know all of the details of my summer internship, I answered their questions as best as I could. And if you have been reading my blog, you probably have a pretty good idea of what I have been up to for the past seven weeks. Still, I get questions about what I do during a typical day. In light of that, I have put together a video to give you a sense of what my life has been like this summer.

So here it is – A Day in the Life of an Advocacy Project Peace Fellow: VIKALP Edition. Enjoy!
