********** MAJOR UPDATE as of 01/20/2015 **********
I live in NYC now and do global sanctions compliance for a French bank!!
I still don't believe it, haha!!
Yay!! Yet another online personal "About Me"!! Where should I begin?
Okay, a new update! Finally scored that a sweet job that uses my degree, and I'm starting my second year of grad school in DC at American University's School of International Service. Currently, I'm doing a M.A. in International Affairs: International Economic Relations, focusing on US foreign policy, international politics, and economic security. I'm particularly interested in the effects of global trade and monetary economics on strategic national and international security policies.
For undergrad, I double majored in International Studies of Economics and International Relations, with a minor in Business Management at UC San Diego. In 2010, I spent 6 months in DC for a work/study/research program at the University of California Washington Center. While there, I did defense and national security related work and found it super interesting. I would eventually love to work on US foreign policy, and I also really like the idea of micro-finance. Perhaps someday, I'll start my own firm and get to help the world, travel, and make some money, too?? :)
In my spare time, I'm a total news junkie and I love to read the Washington Post, Financial Times, The Economist, and Foreign Affairs. I used to work in entertainment and tended bar for years, but I've always been really interested in international events, so I decided to finish my undergrad late and do something more meaningful with my life.
In my free time, I love to workout, run, hike, go to the beach, surf, or pretty much anything outdoors. I also love to cook, eat out, go to movies and hang with friends. I used to do bars a lot, but have kind of grown past that. (Not to say, I don't drink or have fun once in a while.)
I'm very outgoing, but in the times I feel like having alone time, I also love to curl up with a good book and read. But yeah, now, I'm rambling, haha! I guess, if you have any questions, hit me up.
