Ariel Ben-Chitrit is well on his way to his goal of working for the u.s. Government or for a think tank specializing in international relations. The 2014 Beacon College graduate recently spent a year in China teaching English.
“It was my first time abroad for that long,” Ben-Chitrit says. The interdisciplinary studies major has also visited Australia, Israel, and some of the Baltic states. Ben-Chitrit also received a fellow- ship from the American Jewish Committee, working in the advocacy organization’s New York City headquarters. Assigned to the AJC’s development department, he worked on preparations for some of the AJC’s international missions. His duties included preparing briefing papers and researching individual nations’ policies.
