Welcome Orlando, the Nuclear Weapons Abolition Program’s New Summer Intern! June 23, 2023

PSR’s Nuclear Weapons Abolition program is pleased to share that we’ve hired an intrepid new intern for the summer. Meet Orlando Bell, joining us all the way from the United Kingdom. Already, he has dived head first into the internship, joining PSR’s Jasmine Owens in a leadership summit hosted by Foreign Policy for America, which included lobbying Members of Congress on the Hill — all within the first two days of starting at PSR!

Orlando has previously specialized in political communications, research, and polling analysis for London-based firms SABI Strategy Group, The Blakeney Group, and Ranelagh Political Communications. He seeks, however, to move away from the communications world and towards advocacy to help shape a more equitable, just, and sustainable future.

Orlando graduated from Durham University with a first-class bachelor’s degree in History, ranking third amongst his department peers. Orlando spent the final two years of study engaging primarily with development policy and conflict in post-war East Africa, while his dissertation thesis focused on the central myths of statehood within the context of early-colonial Sudan. Additionally, Orlando spent three years writing for Palatinate Newspaper, the UK’s largest student newspaper, on matters of UK politics, climate change, and post-truth.

The NWA team is excited to be working with Orlando this summer. Stay tuned to check out the fantastic work he’ll be producing for PSR!
