Amy is a first-year MSFS student with particular interests in U.S foreign policy towards Northeast Asia, alliance dynamics, and economic statecraft. Prior to coming to Georgetown, Amy worked at the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea, the East-West Center, the Congressional Research Service, and the U.S. Trade Representative. With her expertise in Northeast Asia, she will be working domestically on the Japan Desk at the U.S. State Department and in the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo in 2019. Amy was born in Hong Kong but grew up in Boise, Idaho. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Studies and Economics from American University.
"I was attracted to the MSFS program because it focuses on bridging education with practice. With core qualitative courses and courses in economics, the program will equip me with an academic grounding that will help me become a more effective practitioner in the international arena.”
