My semester in DC provided me with an experience valuable to nearly all employers and opened me to possibilities I had yet to consider.
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
