Crystal Chiglinsky’s interest in international development was first sparked when she had the chance to volunteer at rural field clinics in Ghana as a student at the College of William and Mary. However, her love of global education stems from her three summers teaching at a primary school in rural Kenya. There, she taught classes during the day and worked with amazing young girls from Grades 5-8 in a mentorship program in the evenings. Since then Chiglinsky has worked with both education and health projects in Africa, the Caribbean, and with refugee students here in the US.
Chiglinsky holds a Bachelor of Science in neuroscience from the College of William and Mary and a Master of Science in human rights from University College Dublin in Ireland.
