Noah Zaleman

Hi there, my name is Noah Zaleman and I’m a second year at St. John’s College here in Santa Fe. I go to a great-books school where we learn about the history of math, science, and philosophy by engaging with classic texts from Plato to Einstein. This summer I’m working as an intern at Global Santa Fe to pursue my interest in international relations. I grew up in a French-speaking household and my identity has always consisted of both American and French cultures. I look forward to working with professionals on international relations and participating in the diverse projects that Global Santa Fe offers.
