The first session of our spring quarter career talk series will feature recent Stanford human rights grads who will share their experiences of the post-graduation job search. Featured speakers include:
Ibrahim Bharmal '18 (left) graduated from Stanford with a B.A. in comparative literature and international relations and a minor in human rights. He was also the class president all four years during undergrad. He is currently part of the inaugural Govern For America cohort 2019-2021, as an analyst at the Allegheny County Department of Human Services, where he focuses on initiatives related to criminal justice and reform. He previously worked as an Immigration Law Clerk for the Council on Islamic Relations, a researcher for the Centre For Human Rights Multiculturalism and Migration, and as a law clerk for the Orange County Public Defender.
Sophia Helfand '20 (right) graduated from Stanford with a B.A. in political science, a minor in Spanish, and honors in democracy, development, and the rule of law. Through our center, she spent a week volunteering in an immigration detention center in Texas and took the Human Rights Careers Intensive. She now works as a client advocate in the Alameda County Public Defender’s Office through an organization called Partners for Justice. (As a pertinent aside, she did an informational interview with that organization as homework for the Human Rights Careers Intensive!)
