"I was looking for the blueprint...but I realized at a certain point that the woman I wanted to be would be the woman I had to become." - Elizabeth Acevedo

The American University of Paris

Masters of Arts (M.A.), Public Policy and International Affairs

Going to AUP for two years was like living a dream. I spent my days learning about international politics and policy and my evenings drinking in French language and culture. After three years in Paris, I'm proud to say I'm fluent in French and have experience working at UNESCO and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, not to mention friends and memories that will last a lifetime.

Education

The American University of Pairs

What was it like to live and attend school in Paris? Dreamy. Rewarding. Curious. Moving. Exceptional. Unforgettable. All of the above. Check out this video to get a taste.

International Friends and Experiences

I learned so much about appreciating other cultures while living in France which inspired me to seek my current job at the United Nations. I hope to one day be an international consultant and a global ambassador for peace--aspirations which took hold during my three year sejour in the city of light.

Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development

Program Assistant

My job was to help the Middle East and North African Investment Program mobilize investment as a driving force for economic growth and employment. The Program supports reform efforts to enhance the investment climate by catalyzing entrepreneurship, creating a level playing-field for business, and supporting women's economic integration.

Memories from the OECD

Here are some of my co-workers from my internship period where I worked on the Annual OECD Forum 2015. After 6 months of planning, this photo was snapped several days after the Forum during our post-event celebration. Can you see me poking out in the middle?

UNESCO

Communications Intern

My first real internship was with UNESCO. In addition to researching people and companies of interest, I was responsible for managing outreach to an extensive database of experts and partner companies. I also planned a lot of parties with high-level guests and celebrities. Needless to say, it was quite the introduction to the working world.

Contributor, MOGUL

I work as a Contributor for MOGUL, a media and digital hub for women. My job is to create and publish original blog posts on social, economic, and political issues that pertain to women. I also give feedback to the Mogul organizers on how to improve the platform and services offered.

Fashion Blogging

Yes, I am a fashion blogger. I'm a newbie, but I love it and I hope one day I'll be a fashion influencer (think Kristina Bazan of KATURE). Fashion blogging is a therapeutic hobby that lets me channel the creative energy I don't get to use professionally. Plus, I stay on top of the trends which keeps me looking sharp at work.

Fashion, baby!
