Why did you choose McCourt? I chose McCourt due to its location in Washington DC and access to incredible DC-based faculty, and its strong commitment to international policy.
What professional/ work experience did you have prior to coming to McCourt? I was an undergraduate student at Georgetown (SFS'19) and then began my previous job as the Assistant Director of the Center for Jewish Civilization in Georgetown's School of Foreign Service prior to starting at McCourt in 2020. I also interned with the Anti-Defamation League, Freedom House, and DC Public Schools as an undergraduate.
What has been the best part of your experience so far? The best part of the experience so far has been the relationships I have developed with both my professors and students. The McCourt staff are incredible, too!
