I will be a senior at UW-Madison participating in the La Follette School of Public Affairs’ accelerated Master’s program. My undergraduate studies have been in political geography and environmental studies. I spent much of my undergrad years working for the student government (ASM) in many different facets, including Sustainability Chair and Vote Coordinator. This summer, I completed a foreign policy internship with the U.S. Department of State. The experience with the State Department allowed me to enhance my diplomacy skills, as well as employ my research on international climate and refugee policy. During the Spring semester of 2017, I studied abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark, though an EU politics program, focusing my policy-research on climate refugees. This past year has been most formative for me. When I am not pursuing academic and professional passions, I enjoy traveling, playing soccer, and happy hour with friends.
