As The George Washington University’s class of 2013 commenced on the national mall, I was charged to go forth in this world and do something positive, daring, and impactful. Having recently graduated from the Elliott School of International Affairs, with a degree studying International Relations and Chinese, I found myself at wits end as I contemplated my next steps. During my time at GWU, I had the opportunity to intern with the Federal Communications Commission, for former Montana Representative Denny Rehberg, and the National Bureau of Asian Research. All of these experiences led me to the conclusion that I enjoy working with people, specifically in the capacity of outreach and development. Beyond that, my interests in Asia expanded from a strategic perspective to one that encompasses how globalization and emerging security threats affect policy.

I had a choice, reside in Washington D.C. and pursue a career or join the 2013-2013 cohort as a fellow with Teach for China.
