Elena Ilina: Professional Experience at UN Headquarters

"Once you mention you are from MIIS – you might get a bow from an Ambassador (it happened to me several times already - unbelievable). People really treat you differently when you mention the school.”

Elena is currently an International Professional Service Semester fellow from the Monterey Institute assigned to the United Nations. She describes her fellowship at the United Nations Headquarters, Office for Disarmament Affairs, Weapons of Mass Destruction Branch.
