As an Evans Scholar, Rosanna learned what the fight against poverty looked like in both global and local contexts. Rosanna primarily used her opportunity grants to work on international development in the field and in policy settings. Her experiences included evaluating microfinance programs for Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, filling an interim community fieldworker role with FoodBank South Africa (an NGO focused on building a national network of food banks) in the townships of Cape Town, and interning with the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Closer to home, Rosanna also worked on domestic social policy issues by interning for Philadelphia Councilman Curtis Jones Jr. and for the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs.
