"After I graduated from Hobart, I applied to a graduate program at Georgetown University. I was incredibly lucky to have President Emeritus Mark Gearan L.H.D. ‘17 and Professor of Economics Scott McKinney write me great recommendations – and I was accepted. The program lasted two years and I got my masters in Latin American Studies with a concentration in security and foreign policy."
