Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
I finished my B.A. in Economics in 2009 from Allegheny College in Meadville, PA. Having been focused on East Asia, especially China, I moved to Taiyuan, China in that summer to teach English while I sought to deepen my understanding of the culture and improve my language skills.
In 2011 I decided to return to the United States for graduate school, choosing GWU's International Development Studies program due to its faculty, location, and course offerings. Initially I planned to focus on environmental development and the energy sector; however, through my courses found that I was more drawn to examining education as a means for poverty alleviation in Asia and as a tool for reconciliation in conflict-affected regions.
I am now entering my final semester at GWU and am planning to begin my search for a full time position. Preferably one related to either Asia (Central or East) or education - especially as a means of poverty alleviation or reconciliation.
