Who We Are

Benjamin Boyarskiy


I am from the suburbs of Chicago and am currently attending the University of Chicago where I plan to major in Global Studies and Business Economics. My passion for international development stems from my parents who immigrated from the Soviet Union. I hope to share a perspective that greatly values looking beyond our borders. At UChicago, I am involved in the Society for International Relations and Gotham Chi (a Venture Capital Organization). I am also a ballroom dancer, traveling internationally to compete. I am excited to work with the diverse members of the Simmons Center to emphasize global outreach.
