Fairmont Preparatory alumna Chloe Ma spent her summer working as an operations intern at the Global Nomads Group, a nonprofit organization that uses technology to establish cultural exchange between young people around the globe. A self-identified “global citizen,” Ma was born in China and relocated to Southern California to attend Fairmont Prep. She is currently studying French and government at Hamilton College in Central New York and aspires to connect the world’s youth through technology, hoping to encourage more global citizens.

Ma was featured in an August 2015 Hamilton College news article regarding her work with the GNG and her dream to start her own international non-governmental organization.

“GNG deeply believes that virtual exchanges can promote empathy, peace, and build 21st century workforce skills,” she said in the article. “The future of the world depends on us, the next generation.”

Looking to further her global engagement, Ma will study abroad in Paris next year. While at Hamilton College, Ma has also worked as an intern for the Community Outreach and Opportunity Project and hopes to attend graduate school to attain either an MBA or MPA before establishing her own international NGO.
