Why have you chosen McCourt? I chose McCourt because of the curriculum sequence and opportunities to get involved outside of the classroom. The quantitative core courses, combined with the variety of elective courses, seemed like the perfect fit to explore my policy interests. Plus, who wouldn't want to study public policy in Washington, D.C.
 
What's the best part of your experience so far? I truly enjoy the classes that I am taking - both my core courses and elective course. The content is relevant to my policy interests, and I am learning a lot from my classmates and professors. Also, McCourt and Georgetown offer numerous interesting policy-related events and activities outside of the classroom!
 
Undergraduate Degree and University: I graduated from the University of Maryland in 2017, with a B.A. in Government and a B.A. in Spanish.
 
Hobbies / Interests: On campus, I am involved with the Georgetown Public Policy Review and the Georgetown Public Policy Student Association. I also love exploring D.C., and I am interested in photography.
