Degree/Year: EMPL 2020
Hometown: London, England
Why did you choose McCourt? Being British, and having predominantly UK but also international work experience, currently working in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as a senior executive advisor on the G20 labour & employment policies, learning about U.S public policy making was pivotal to my personal development as a global policy leader. I reviewed and compared three reputable institutions across the U.S and decided on attending Georgetown University, mainly for its global reputation and the experience of the professors on this particular programme. Another key factor is the insights gained from being at the heart of policy making – in Washington DC.
What was the best/most memorable part of your experience? The relationships made as a cohort. I have class colleagues who bring a vast amount of experience and worldly insights to the sessions adding to the value of EMPL. Our faculty Director Dr. Gerry Gingrich, her mentorship, excellence, and direction was key to the decision making for joining Georgetown in the first place.
Undergraduate Degree/School: I am truly an international student. I have had the opportunity of studying in both Cyprus and in London, England. My qualifications are BA.Hons in English language & literature and pedagogical sciences and my postgraduate studies are in postcolonial theory. I have participated at prominent educational institutions such as the London School of Economics, Harvard Kennedy School, and INSEAD.
Hobbies/ Interests: I certainly do spend a lot of my time travelling. I am intrigued by cultures, language and societies. More recently, I qualified as an advanced scuba diver and have joined up my two passions of travelling and scuba diving as much as possible!!
