Our 48th Rhodes Scholar, Rachel Myrick

Congratulations to our newest Rhodes Scholar, political science and global studies major Rachel Myrick. Rachel came to us from Myers Park High School in Charlotte, NC and she's done some incredible things during her four years at Carolina, uniting her passions for social action and policy. She has spent the last three summers working for a domestic violence shelter in Belize, an international development firm in Cambodia, and a strategic consulting firm in Washington, D.C.

On campus, she serves as the student body vice president and was the driving force behind last year's very successful TEDxUNC conference. She'll also graduate as both a Public Service Scholar and a Carolina Research Scholar.

Rachel plans to use her Rhodes Scholarship to pursue a master’s degree in international relations, studying the causes and consequences of ethnic conflict in world politics. Read more about Rachel.
