NYU Reynolds Program in Social Entrepreneurship
Rachel Botos is the Program Coordinator at the NYU Reynolds Program. Prior to joining the Reynolds team, Rachel worked with the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) and the William J. Clinton Foundation. During that time, she moved from the position of press and speechwriting intern at the Foundation to a project-based position with the Sponsorship Department at CGI, managing the invitation and registration process for ten programmed dinners during the 2011 Annual Meeting.
Rachel is a recent graduate of NYU, where she studied Media, Culture, and Communications and focused on policy and public service work. She has held several political internships: with Congresswoman Maloney's office, on Senator Gillibrand's campaign, and in Senator Kerry's district office and legislative office, where she was also an NYU John Brademas Center intern.
While at school, Rachel volunteered with Global Medical and Dental Brigades, eventually as a founding president of one Global Dental Brigades chapter. Global Brigades is the largest student-run health and sustainable development organization in the world and its chapters focus on empowering communities through a multi-disciplinary approach. In three years, Rachel volunteered and helped to lead four trips to Honduras, providing medical and dental care to over 10,000 patients in rural communities.
