I am an undergraduate student at American University from Portland, Oregon, where I attended St. Mary’s Academy, a Catholic all-girls school. At AU I am majoring in International Studies with a primary concentration in Peace, Global Security, and Conflict Resolution, and a secondary focus in U.S. Foreign Policy. I was admitted to the AU Scholars Program for my freshman year, and was a member of the 2017-2018 Olson Scholars Cohort. I can be reached at jw5912a@american.edu.
