  1. #HumansofHeller #HellerAtWork MBA/SID student Alison Collins is one of three Heller students to receive a coveted Harvard Rappaport Institute Public Policy Summer Fellowship. She says, "As a Rappaport Public Policy Fellow, I will support workforce development initiatives at the Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA), an agency that assists and empowers low-income individuals and families to meet their basic needs, improve their quality of life, and achieve long-term economic self-sufficiency. Much of my work has been focused internationally, however the three pillars of sustainable development-economy, society, and environment-are universal. I feel a strong commitment to apply my expertise on a local level, working in the public sector to address social and economic issues in my own community. I am looking forward to this exciting opportunity to learn more about state and local government while working to promote equality throughout Massachusetts!" #hellerschool #brandeisuniversity #hellerhustle

  4. #HellerAtWork Prayas Neupane, MA-SID'14, Microenterprise Manager at the International Institute of New England. "The picture was taken during a resource clinic for refugees, asylees and immigrants at the International Institute of Lowell in Lowell, Massachusetts. The goal of the clinic was to provide information to recently arrived refugees, immigrants and asylees on financial support services including affordable housing, car, business development and education. In the picture, I am describing support services offered by International Institute of New England to entrepreneurs who are looking to start a business." #HellerSchool #Brandeis #BrandeisUniversity

On her blog (dhahabu-in-tanzania on Tumblr), Rachel says, "This past week was awe inspiring to say the least. Since I have moved to Tanzania, as a student of Swahili for a whole year with the Boren Fellowship Award, I have dedicated my time and attention to Swahili language learning and of course, I could not help myself, engaging in a little community organizing to improve local business and planning with a group of women." #HellerSchool #BorenFellowship #Brandeis #BrandeisUniversity #Tanzania #internationaldevelopment
