I am a rising senior at Duke University, pursuing a diverse academic path encompassing Political Science, Religion, and Global Health. Fueled by a deep commitment to public service and an unwavering passion for foreign policy, I aspire to create a lasting and positive impact on the lives of individuals both domestically and worldwide. Hailing from Bowling Green, Kentucky, my upbringing has instilled in me a firm belief in values-driven policymaking as a crucial approach to addressing the intricate challenges of our interconnected world.
On campus, I assume prominent leadership roles as I spearhead the Duke-UNICEF club and guide the American Grand Strategy Student Council. My extensive engagement in public service and foreign policy is underscored by my prior employment with esteemed institutions such as the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the State Department's U.S. Mission to the United Nations.
My literary favorites reveal my profound understanding of the importance of understanding the human consequences of policy. "All Quiet on the Western Front" and "No Good Men Among the Living" have left an indelible impression on me emphasizing the need to recognize and uphold the inherent worth of every individual.
I hope to make a remarkable contribution in the realms of public service and global affairs.
