Interview with Hannah McKinney

CIW's Professor Silbey interviews the winner of 2015's John F Kennedy Memorial Award, Hannah McKinney.  

How did your Cornell experience shape your vision of your future?

Cornell had allowed me to pursue my interests rather than a prescribed career path, for which I am very grateful. My professors are so supportive because they understand the plight of the liberal arts student! The sheer variety and amount of unbelievable experiences that I have had through Cornell (Cornell in Washington, a summer in Spain, volunteering in a prison) have undeniably shaped who I am and who I will be. I don't think that every school offers this diverse array of opportunities. That said, Cornell has also given me perspective and the ability to make practical decisions about my future.

"It was great to see students working together and building relationships with students across the world with whom they likely otherwise wouldn’t have an opportunity to interact. This sort of interaction was a first-time experience for many”
