Prior to joining MSFS, Alexander spent three years working in the social sector in the UK, focusing on addressing educational disadvantage amongst migrants, refugees, and severely bullied young people. Most recently, he worked as an Anti-bullying Project Manager for the Diana Award, developing a digital citizenship curriculum for young people across the UK.
Alexander hopes to use his time in the MSFS program to develop a deeper understanding of human rights and democracy, with a particular focus on defending the rights of minorities; education; and social impact in Europe and the Middle East.
"I applied to the MSFS program because of the practitioner- dominant faculty, the diversity of courses on offer, and its location at the heart of international policy-making. Having completed an undergraduate degree in Middle Eastern Studies in the UK, I wanted to gain the U.S. perspective on developments in the Middle East and an understanding of the approach to foreign policy.”
