In college, she spent a semester in The Hague, where she took classes on international law and justice at Leiden University and completed a practicum at the Chinese Initiative on International Law.

Ultimately, Honoré hopes to pursue a career in diplomacy, either as an advisor to policymakers in the executive or legislative branches of the U.S. government or as a Foreign Service Officer in the Department of State. She is especially interested in U.S. foreign policy towards China.
