Eli Harrington, Director, International Visitor Leadership Program
eli@vermont.org Eli is a native Vermonter from Winooski, whose multicultural character helped him learn from a young age to respect and appreciate his classmates from all over the world. He began to develop his international interests while in high school and traveled to France twice on exchange programs. Eli attended Brandeis University where he majored in International and Global Studies-Communication and Media, with a minor in French and Francophone Studies and Journalism. His international interests led him to study three semesters of Mandarin before deciding to study abroad in Beijing in the summer of 2008. For ten weeks, Eli lived at the Beijing Language and Culture University, studying intensive Mandarin and experiencing local life and culture leading up to the 2008 Olympic Games. While in Beijing, Eli also worked as an intern at the Voice of America's Beijing bureau. In his time there, he assisted in a variety of stories and themes from international wildlife trafficking to Olympics-related stories.

Still, despite the needed improvements to Vermont's cannabis policy at large, Harrington says the legalization bill is a good step forward, showing that lawmakers have finally caught up with what's been Vermonters' will for decades. "We'll update it and fix it as we go," he says.
