Cameron’s interest in the Foreign Service stemmed from his extensive travel experience. As a Pickering Fellow he will be enrolled in the Foreign Service as an Officer upon the completion of his academic requirements. Cameron has been to 21 countries, almost a third, of which he visited on Semester at Sea in the Spring of 2010, a program he was able to participate in because of the funding provided by the Pickering Program. He cites the Foreign Service as an opportunity to work and learn about the wonderful world around us.
