School: UGA School of Public and International Affairs
Type of Internship: Congressional Office

A sense of adventure was one of the primary reasons as to why I chose to move almost a thousand miles and go to UGA. Originally from Waco, TX, a sense of adventure, as well as my family’s love for the Dawgs, brought me to Athens to discover endless possibilities and opportunities. One of those discoveries was my affection toward political science and especially international affairs. Without friends and mentors telling me about SPIA, I wouldn’t have known about the great programs we have at Georgia. That same sense of adventure then led me to participate in things like Dawg Camp, UGA HEROs, and join a fraternity. It also pushed me to spend my last semester in college in the Washington Semester Program.

Type of Internship: Congressional Office

I am from Watkinsville, Georgia and received my undergraduate degree in international affairs and my master’s degree in international policy.  I started traveling at a young age, which led to my enthusiasm for international politics.  National security and government have driven my academic pursuits since I was 13 years old, though my interests are varied and include issues from agriculture to space.  I look forward to new adventures and value good friends and family with which to share them

Type of Internship: Congressional Office

I grew up in Atlanta and attended the magnet program at Chamblee High School. I was that kid that got “Most likely to be the first woman president” in 7th grade. Seriously, I have the certificate to prove it. But because of my intense study of German (13 years and counting) and this globalized world we live in nowadays, I ended up picking International relations instead of political science. I have since narrowed my interest to focus on nuclear (non)proliferation and strategic trade controls. Outside of academia, I was in the Alpha Chi Omega sorority and on the executive board of FOOTSTEPS while at UGA.
