Yves Heller Class of 1982
September 20, 2007
After AES, I graduated from Lewis and Clark College and then got a Masters. I then moved to Mexico, where I taught International Affairs and English at a rich kids' university. I got tired of that and decided to do something more "humanitarian" and have since worked primarily with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). I'm currently assigned in Bogota, Colombia, where I work as the communications coordinator and spokesperson. I worked quite a bit with the army, the rebels, and the media. The work is hairy and extremely stressful, but I thoroughly enjoy it.
I'm married and have a seven-year-old daughter. My brother Patrick (Class of 1981) is teaching at Brown, and my sister is working at a psychiatric nurse in Cheeseland. They both have two kids each. My parents retired several years ago and live close to Berne.
I travel on occasion to Washington DC so let me know if anyone is on the east coast. Would be cool to stay in touch. Who's going to the AIS/AES 2010 Reunion?
