Functional global trade is essential to our economy and its functioning can only be assured through forceful advocacy for a sustainable future for global trade. I am pursing a graduate degree in Foreign Service in order to better understand how policies are shaped at an international level so that I may become a more effective advocate for equitable trade policy. I plan to combine my economics background, work experience in and out of government, the tools with which the Walsh School of Foreign Service will equip me, and the deep knowledge network of the Hinrich Foundation in service of trade policy formulation that promotes the public interest in a more sustainable global trading system.
The resources provided by the Hinrich Foundation, both in funding my education through the Global Trade Leader Scholarship and in its community of experts, will enable me to become the most effective advocate for this sustainable approach to global trade possible.
