Hello! My name is Jack Nichting and I am working on my Masters in Secondary Education from Old Dominion University while living in Newport, Rhode Island and working at this delicious local restaurant. I graduated from the University of Virginia in 2017 with a degree in International Relations and International Humanitarian Aid, and then finished up a Master’s in Public Administration focusing on International Development at James Madison University. My passion for international development is widespread with a particular interest in food insecurity and youth empowerment. Down the road, I am hoping to follow this line of work and to consistently be engaging with practitioners in the field of development and finding ways to optimize developmental strategies.
