Marie is a second-year at Columbia College studying Economics, International Affairs, and Sustainable Development. As a Global Thought Scholar, she is excited to intersect these disciplines with those of her peers. Amongst the issues which she is interested in analyzing this summer, she is passionate about tracking and comparing the cultural, economic, academic, and political reception of displaced peoples who belong to the LBGTQ+ community. She hopes to develop a global map of tolerance levels, ideal pathways, and resources for individuals in this position.
