About Me

Welcome! My name is Ellen Pasquale and I am a senior in American University’s School of International Service, majoring in International Affairs. I will be graduating in May with concentrations in International Development and Human Rights and a minor in Literature.

After graduation, I will be working as a project assistant for Sidley Austin LLP in Washington, DC. It felt too soon for me to leave this city! I have always had the goal of going to law school, and my goal is to begin my enrollment in the Fall of 2020.

I both began and will leave American University wanting to make my mark in the world through international development work, and hope to do that in the future through working as an attorney for a development firm or agency.

I haven’t had much free time this year, but with the time I have I read (hence the literature minor!), write, re-watch episodes of Arrested Development and browse puppies I can’t adopt on Pet Finder.
