Work Experience: Over the past two and a half years I worked as a risk management and new business analyst at the DC based, international, corporate law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP
Why I Chose MAGES: As a German minor and History major at the University of Michigan, I developed a passion and interest in the history and politics of Europe and Germany during my undergraduate studies. I’ve also always had a strong interested in international relations. After doing some research, I found that the MAGES program combines all of my interests into a comprehensive, dynamic master’s program within the broader School of Foreign Service at Georgetown. These strengths and the incredible Georgetown network will most definitely prepare me for the Foreign Service, my long term career aspiration.
Intended Academic Focus: The intersection of Security and International Business/Trade
