Erin Norris

International Affairs, BA | Political Science, BA

Erin attended high school in Long Island, NY where she was involved with the Model UN team, FIRST Robotics team and the French Honor Society.  Through her experiences in Model United Nations, she realized not only the diversity of the world around her, but also how similar people are across nations.  This, combined with community volunteer work, a passion for human rights, public speaking, and learning about different cultures, helped to kick-start her ambitions to work internationally.  Erin is a combined International Affairs and Political Science major, with minors in Asian Studies, History and Japanese. In Erin’s words, “I’ve always wanted to do something with my life that would make the world a better place.”

Erin was an active member in Northeastern’s International Relations Council (IRC), where she served on the Board of Directors and the Executive Board.  She was a member of IRC’s competitive travel team and Head Delegate at several conferences.  Competing on the IRC’s Model UN and Model Arab League teams enabled her to sharpen skills and learn more about the complex political situations in each country represented.  Erin engaged in a mentorship with the younger students on the team. In Erin’s words, “I cannot understate how much love I have for my teammates and what we do, and the amazing sense of community that I have found within Northeastern as a result of my participation on the team.”
