Harvard University

Ed.M., International Education Policy

Attending HGSE and being part of the IEP program was one of the best decisions I've ever made. As a student, I deepened my focus on education and social innovation in Africa, and took full advantage of multiple opportunities for further research, writing, and exposure that placed me on a different course post-grad school.

I moved to South Africa in 2008 as a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar, where I was meant to spend one year earning an MA at Wits. Instead, I spent nearly a decade on the continent, working in education, growing, and learning - and, having the time of my life.

BA, History

Georgetown laid the foundation for me to become the person that I am today. Currently, I'm fortunate to be able to give back to Georgetown as a Trustee of the George F. Bakers Scholars Program, which had such a powerful impact on my life in undergrad and beyond.
