The place(s) I call home

Austin, Texas

Prior to PSIA I was

interning at the US Department of State in Washington, D.C.

 

My life at PSIA

It offers a well-rounded curriculum that has provided me with a valuable skill set tailored to my career objectives. The core courses have strengthened my quantitative and management skills, while electives have enabled me to study specific international development issues in depth. Spending the first year at PSIA and the second at SIPA allowed me to gain exposure to two very different academic approaches and meet professors, professionals, and students from all over the world.

My objectives

I hope to start my career with an NGO targeting women's issues in post-conflict situations, particularly addressing gender-based violence and the economic empowerment of women. Later I'd like to work for a development bank, such as the Inter-American Development Bank or African Development Bank. I am very interested in the impact of violent conflict on women in Sub-Saharan Africa.

My best tips

Don't procrastinate!
