Lisanne Bluemel completed UNC Greensboro’s Peace and Conflict Studies graduate Master’s program in May of 2016. Originally from Iserlohn, Germany, Lisanne remained in the U.S. and has been interning with the Global Opportunities (GO) Center as the Community Engagement intern through the Opportunity Greensboro Fellows Program 2016.
Due to the fact that the GO Center launched at the beginning of the year, Lisanne’s tasks have ranged from fundraising to website design, with a primary focus on program development. Through this opportunity, Lisanne has been able to further explore her personal interests in international higher education.
