iYouth Co-President Nate Halsan
I am a second year student in hot pursuit of my MLIS. My career interests focus on youth services – particularly to children from birth through 14.
Prior to joining the field of librarianship, I worked in higher education. I spent 5 years in Berlin, Germany working towards a Master’s of European Studies at the Viadrina University (completed June 2010). While in Berlin, I also worked for a study abroad company aiding undergraduate students in cultural adjustment and independent research projects. Upon returning to the US, I worked first for Lexia Study Abroad in Hanover, New Hampshire where I was responsible for Northeast recruitment and curricular oversight for European programming (Berlin, Krakow, Paris, Rome and Budapest/Transylvania). From Hanover I moved to Irvine, California where I spent a year and a half as an international student adviser at the University of California.
I am stoked for the collaborative and enthusiastic environment our student run organization brings to the iSchool. Get involved! Let’s make iYouth the rad organization we all want it to be!
