Government Affairs Intern - Summer 2019
Nicole Carter will be a junior at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in the fall, where she is a double-major in Economics and International Studies. At school she serves as a Resident Assistant and competes on both the Forensics Team and the Federal Reserve Challenge Team. Prior to joining CAIR, Nicole worked as a global development programs intern for the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and spent the fall 2018 semester studying in Ghana, where she was a fundraising/projects intern for the Play and Learn Foundation. An aspiring attorney, Nicole hopes to eventually build a career in human rights law working with NGOs and intergovernmental organizations. She was drawn to CAIR-Chicago by a strong disappointment in the way she sees Muslims and other religious minorities being treated, and a desire to help promote acceptance and civil rights in the US.
