Cecilia is from Pennsylvania and received her B.A. in English and Italian and a minor in economics from Penn State University in 2019. She is pursuing a concentration in Global Politics & Security as well as a Certificate in Arab Studies at Georgetown. As an undergraduate, she had the opportunity to study in India, Germany, and Italy and to intern with both publishing and finance firms. She speaks Spanish, French, and Italian and is learning Arabic at Georgetown. She hopes to work in conflict resolution; for a human rights think tank; or as a Foreign Service Officer after completing the MSFS program.
"I chose MSFS because the program helps bridge the gap between theory and application and prepares students really well for a career in public service."
