Where are you working currently and what do you do there?
I am currently working at Deloitte. I work in the Government & Public Sector (GPS) practice where I help federal clients solve challenges and find ways to improve processes in place.
How did the MA in IR Program prepare you for what you are doing now?
The MA IR Program helped me build a network. Your network can be anyone--from your professors, to your classmates, to the people you meet throughout your journey at NYU. Building your network will not only help you during your time at NYU but also post-graduation when you start looking for jobs and building your career.
What advice do you have for current students who may be looking for a career in your field?
Cultivate experience by being involved in what it is you want to do--whether that's through internships, part-time jobs, volunteering, etc. By proactively being present in the spaces you want to be a part of post-graduation, you build your resume, your credentials and overall qualifications that will help you land your "dream job."
Which class did you enjoy the most? And the one in which you learned the most?
I enjoyed all of my classes at NYU. A notable one is a Stern class I took called "Power & Politics in Organizations" with Kabi. Despite it being a 9-4 class on Saturdays, I enjoyed every minute of it. Even though it was outside of my field (IR), it uniquely incorporated many of the themes we learn in International Relations into a Business setting.
What is your favorite place on campus? What do you like best about student life at NYU?
My favorite places on campuses were Washington Square Park, the spiritual building right across from it, and the Africa House building on Washington Mews. I love the mélange of student life and city life. There's so much diversity, so much to do, and endless possibilities to explore.
