The son of two agronomists, Ben Zehr grew up in rural India and has spent most of his life surrounded by rural development challenges – majoring in both IARD and AEM here at Cornell, he hopes to be part of a larger solution to persistent poverty and inequality. On campus, Ben has served on the executive board of AIESEC, an international student organization that provides internship based exchange experiences to college students worldwide. He is also Associate Editor for Business Asia Journal, Cornell’s only student magazine focusing on business in Asia. What seems to take up most of his time however, is singing with and managing the finances of the Men of Last Call, an all male a cappella group on campus.
