MA Candidate International Development (Governance, Politics and Conflict Management) and International Economics

Master's DegreeJohns Hopkins University, School of Advanced International Studies

United States

Summary

I am a second year MA Candidate with professional experience in seven developing countries. I am seeking a full-time position in a multilateral or nongovernmental organization with particular interest in gender, peace, and governance. My experiences working with marginalized women as well as children facing the travails of an unofficial war in Rio’s peripheral slums have exposed me to the significance of protecting and including women in democratic governance and peace processes. I believe the solutions needed to promote prosperity and sustain peace lie in the dialogue and initiatives cultivated by empowered women. This belief has compelled me to devote my career to enhancing institutions and fostering movements for peace by focusing on gender inclusion and the elimination of violence against women and girls. Outside of work, my greatest commitment remains meditation, the outdoors, hiking and experiencing all of the unknown elements that foreign cultures, cuisines, and societies have to offer.
