I'm a 2007 Dartmouth College graduate with a double major in GOVT and AMES (Asian and Middle Eastern Studies).
I currently work as a Public Diplomacy Officer in the U.S. Embassy in La Paz, Bolivia with the U.S. Department of State. I work on cultural and educational exchanges, and also help with press/media communications for the Embassy. My GOVT major was a great way to learn about international relations and the different types of jobs that are available in my field, and I did an internship in the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo with a Dickey Center Grant during my junior year of college. That was instrumental in beginning my career in public service with the U.S. government, and I was really lucky to get funding from the U.S. State Department (and Dartmouth) to do my Masters at the Harvard Kennedy School before starting my position with the State Department.
