Nushy Golriz graduated from Dartmouth College with a B.A. in Hispanic Studies and Geography modified with Portuguese.

At Dartmouth, she worked as an introductory Spanish instructor and studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Salvador, Brazil.

Nushy also spent a term interning in Santiago, Chile at an organization called Corporacion Parque por la Paz Villa Grimaldi. Villa Grimaldi is a former detention center established under Pinochet’s dictatorship which has been converted into a public park, museum and oral archive. At Villa Grimaldi, Nushy worked with the oral archive: transcribing and translating the stories of survivors who had been tortured at the site. Through this experience, Nushy became extremely interested in working with human rights and spent a term interning at the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights in Oakland, CA.

Nushy is honored to join BDS and continue working with local human rights issues.
