Congratulations to Katie Hart (IPE ’18) for her IPE Summer Internship and for her new position as the 2017-2018 IPE Program Assistant! Katie became an IPE major because she thoroughly enjoyed Lisa Nunn’s introductory IPE class and discussions of IPE theory. She also finds her IPE professors and her peers to be engaging, critical, and thoughtful, creating an environment where she can learn and have her beliefs challenged. This summer, Katie is interning with the Northwest Immigrants Rights Project here in Tacoma, Washington. Next year, Katie is looking forward to continuing her involvement with the IPE department and building the relationship between the department and the greater Tacoma community. Previously, Katie has studied abroad in Madrid, Spain while interning with the Red Cross of Madrid with one of their youth development programs. After graduation, Katie jokes with her parents that she would like to buy a one-way ticket to Argentina, backpack in Patagonia, and hope for the best, but in the long term she is interested in pursuing a career in immigration law in the Pacific Northwest. In her free time, Katie likes playing lacrosse, hiking, trail running, or drinking cappuccinos in coffee shops.
