Just a few pages into the Quarterly, readers are introduced to alumna Anjana Shakya ’91, who co-founded the Himalayan Human Rights Monitor, an NGO that focuses primarily on the women and children of Nepal. Twenty pages later, readers will find the SAQ’s cover story about Denise Silber ’74. Silber received the French Legion of Honor this spring for her work in helping to create the first medical websites in France.
The Quarterly also celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the Peace Corps, with an eight-page spread cataloging Smithies’ experiences with the program, and the final page of the magazine showcases beautiful photographs from Rhythm Nations, the International Students’ Organizations’ display of music, dancing, and costumes from around the world.
