Jack (class of 2016) majored in international relations and specialized in international security and economic development. Jack and fellow Stanford student Hannah Long received funding for their project on Iranian LGBT refugees in Turkey for the summer of 2015. “[This project] was an incredible capstone experience to my Stanford career.

“Moving forward, I hope to continue building upon my understanding of Iranian politics and history and keep involved in similar journalistic and oral documentary projects.”
