Adam Levin came to William & Mary in the fall of 2007 with an open mind and quite undecided on his major. He graduated in May 2011 with a major in International Relations and a minor in Hispanic Studies. During his sophomore year, he enrolled in History of Latin America with Professor Betsy Konefal. This quickly confirmed his interests in Latin America and international human rights issues. A year later he studied abroad for six months in La Plata, Argentina. During his time in Argentina, he was given the opportunity to intern with the Comisión Provincial Por La Memoria where he participated in a myriad of human rights related events. In the summer of 2010, Adam interned with the National Security Archive. He hopes to return to Latin America after graduation and eventually attend law or graduate school. Adam enjoys fall in New England, everything outdoors and is a bit obsessed with his dog.
