Pursuing international experience, passion, and integrity.
I am a junior at Boston University studying International Relations as well as pursuing a minor in Journalism. Within the International Relations major, I have a regional concentration in Europe, as well as a functional concentration in International Systems and World Order.
Currently, I am studying the Russian language and also possess some Spanish speaking, reading, writing, and listening capabilities.
From my studies, I have also obtained background in the history of International Relations from the late 1800s to the present day, a basic understanding of micro and macroeconomics, and the fundamentals of intelligence agencies. Additionally, last Spring I completed courses on nuclear governance and news writing practices. As part of these classes, I wrote a policy memo, multiple op-eds, news stories, and features.
When in the workplace, I strive to be versatile and am always eager to learn. I am confident in my writing abilities, attention to detail, positive attitude, and researching savvy. My skillset shines when using my inquisitive nature to explore solutions to policy issues, and illustrating these solutions in varied written form
In creative pursuits, my passion lies in photography. Through taking photos, I seek the world's beauty hidden by the naked eye. While I prefer nature and portrait photography, I am knowledgeable about many genres of photography and various editing methods/platforms, notably Adobe Lightroom. During this semester I have taken a photography course where I expanded my creative skillset and gained some proficiency in Adobe Photoshop.
On-campus, I am a writer and editor for Her Campus, as well as a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. Within Kappa Alpha Theta, I hold the officer position of Ritualist, where I am responsible for upholding and celebrating the chapter's traditions and history.
Whether I am pursuing an invoking photo, writing my next article, or in the workplace, I always seek to not only fulfill my responsibilities but extend beyond them. I am always eager to tackle new projects and learn from those around me. I strongly believe in the importance of surrounding oneself with other perspectives and viewpoints, and seek cultural awareness through this.
