My name is Kendall Snyder, and I am a rising senior here at the University of Maryland (UMD)
studying International Relations and Anthropology. My key interest areas are in foreign policy,
intelligence, and aid with a focus on how these are affected by various cultural factors. I have
spent this last year working as a research assistant at UMD researching US foreign aid and
national defense appropriations. I hope to one day work in international development, foreign
assistance, or international intelligence. As for right now, I am looking forward to a new
challenge here at ARLIS and am incredibly excited to be a member of the RISC team!
