Hello! My name is Christina Ferrell and I am a junior at the Honors College of Charleston and a member of the International Scholars Program. I am double majoring in International Studies and French with a minor in Russian Studies. I’m from Fort Mill, South Carolina, and love to learn about politics and languages! After graduation, I plan to complete a master’s degree in Democracy and Political Science, focusing on Eastern European Studies and pursue a career in world politics in Europe.
I began working as a Peer Career Advisor at the College of Charleston Career Center during the Spring semester of my sophomore year. I have learned so much from this job about resumes, interview techniques, and cover letter drafting that I will take with me after I graduate. I love to help students improve their resumes and give them advice on how to find internships that align with their major and will help them in their prospective career.
