El Moumouhi originally learned about this opportunity from an on-campus presentation in October 2010 by Igor Shpiniov from the DGACM at the United Nations. Shpiniov encouraged her to apply for the highly selective summer language internship, which led to an interview with the DGACM. Her internship will take place from July 5 to Aug. 31.

“Primarily, as an intern, I will be assigned to the Training and Outreach Coordination Team, which is part of the Office of the Under-Secretary-General, Department for General Assembly and Conference Management, New York,” El Moumouhi said. “Main assignments include providing administrative support for training and outreach, translating portions of the Language Outreach Portal from English into Arabic and/or French, and attending meetings and conferences at the United Nations.”

As a student at Truman, El Moumouhi teaches Arabic in the Department of Classical & Modern Languages and works as a peer advisor and mock interviewer in the Career Center. She will graduate in December.
