I am Corrine Bonnerwith, the Director of Innovation and Strategy here at CAF America. In my role I help to support the Senior and Executive Level staff. In addition to managing high level projects, I work directly to support the implementation of CAF America Strategic Plan.
Prior to joining CAF America, I had an internship at the Mission of Rwanda to the United Nations where I supported Economic and Social negotiations and provided direct support to diplomats. I lobbied for the continuation of PHEAA funding for undergraduate students in Pennsylvania. I spearheaded several fundraisers aimed at supporting causes internationally as well as domestically. These experiences helped to solidify my passion for working in political science and international relations.
I graduated from Wilkes University in 2019 with a B.A in International Relations with a concentration in Anthropology and minors in Women’s and Gender Studies and Political Science. I am currently pursuing a masters at American University in International Relations with a concentrations in International Negotiation and Conflict Resolution.
“Your life is a message to the world,” is a quote that keeps me grounded in my everyday life. It keeps me living in the present and engaged in the work that I do at CAF America and academically.
