Professional Experience

After graduating in 2013, I moved to Washington DC where I worked as a Legal Assistant in a law firm specializing in telecommunications work. After a little over a year and a half, I transitioned into the field of international development particularly around democracy promotion, working at the National Democratic Institute as a project assistant for the Middle East & North Africa team.

MSFS Internships

I'm very excited to say I've obtained an internship for this coming Spring with the State Department's bureau for Population, Migration, and Refugees in their Near East Asia division. It's always been a dream of mine to work at State and now I'm very excited that I will have the chance to work on some very timely and important issues. I hope to work abroad over the summer.

Language Experience
