"I chose MSFS because of its world-class faculty, cutting-edge course topics, and unparalleled opportunities to hear from foreign policy experts from around the world. The four pillars of MSFS, leadership, service, creativity, and ethics, should be the foundation for anyone pursuing a career in public service, and are qualities I hope to embody as a U.S. diplomat."
