Passion for Human Rights
After graduating from the U in August 2015 with a degree in economics and political science, Daniela Prigozhina wasted no time putting her knowledge and skills to work as a research fellow at Partnership for Public Service in Washington, D.C. A recipient of several scholarships, including the Robert P. and Sally G. Sands Scholarship and the Sinclair Scholarship, Prigozhina helped found the U’s Russian Speaking Student Association and was involved in several human rights groups.
Most rewarding experience at the U?
The human rights and advocacy internships that I had. Every day I was learning something new and working toward helping an individual or a community.
Human Rights Law. I was so interested in the topic that I read the giant law book for fun sometimes.
How did scholarships help?
Scholarship support allowed me to grasp every opportunity, to be involved on campus and in the community, and to begin my career. It’s an incredible feeling to have that financial and moral support and the opportunity to follow my dreams.
