Hannah Waller


Originally from Spokane, Washington, Hannah Waller grew up with an interest in human rights, and credits this inspiration to her father, a professor of Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Keene State College. A senior with a dual major in political science and international affairs and a minor in Spanish, Hannah is a member of the University Honors Program and a Hamel Scholar. She dove into her International Research Opportunities Program (IROP) experience, reflecting that she was embraced by the citizens of Bosnia-Herzegovina as one of their own. “I made life-long friendships,” she said. “It was fun, albeit exhausting, to learn a new language.” Hannah intends to use this research for her senior honors thesis. She discovered Inquiry through her IROP coordinator, Georgeann Murphy, and is excited to publish her research. Following graduation, Hannah will attend George Washington University to pursue a master's degree in international affairs with a focus on conflict resolution.
