My name is Sinziana Stanciu and I am excited to be part of the inaugural cohort of Global Thought Scholars! I am a history major (GS ’24) in the Columbia and Trinity Dual BA program. My interest in this program stems from thinking about how to solve problems through the lens of advocacy. Rather than thinking about problems individually, it’s possible to reach across disciplines to understand how they’ve been solved in the past and replicate that. People can use successful advocacy tools to solve local and global problems regarding climate change, freedom of speech, and women’s rights effectively.
