Hometown: Salt Lake City, Utah
Current City: Washington, DC
Why did you choose McCourt? I chose McCourt so I could live and take classes in the best city for public policy! Washington DC is the best location for foreign policy in the United States so by attending McCourt, I am able to attend talks and lectures, intern with a focus on foreign policy, and take classes from professors that have had a previous career in foreign policy and national security.
What was the best part of your experience? Developing a tight community even during a pandemic has been the best experience at McCourt for me! Students attending McCourt are all passionate about public policy, and making positive change happen in a broad area so it has been a great environment to be able to throw around ideas and be challenged by classmates both during class, or in our free time.
What student organizations are you involved with? I am involved in the Latin America Policy Association (LAPA) and I am also an editor with the Georgetown Public Policy Review.
Undergraduate University, degree, and major: Gonzaga University, BA in History and International Relations
Hobbies / Interests: In my free time, I enjoy hiking, cooking, making beer, and playing fifa!
