EducationI graduated in 2012 from Johns Hopkins University with a degree in political science. I'm currently getting my Master's degree from Boston University in international affairs, and have a GPA of 3.85.
I've studied and traveled abroad in Chile, Peru, Bolivia, and Cuba, where I honed my Spanish language skills. I particularly excel at conversational language skills.
This past semester, I volunteered to mentor a high school student writing an honors thesis in history, and worked with other BU students to create a lesson plan for special lessons in world history and current events.
ExperienceSAT combined score: 2110

Spent a semester abroad in Santiago, Chile, where all classes and assignments were conducted in Spanish.
Participated in the full IB program in high school, familiar with the program's rigors and requirements.
Last year I worked with a high school sophomore who was getting D's and F's in his English, Spanish, and history classes. By the end of our year together, he was getting A's and B+'s in those courses.
I don't have a car, so I will need to be able to meet with students in places that are T accessible.
HobbiesI run events ranging from 5ks to half marathons and enjoy obstacle course races like the Tough Mudder. I'm also a martial artist, and currently train at a mixed martial arts gym. In addition, I enjoy reading and writing fiction and poetry, love dogs, and take a certain nerdy delight in some science fiction movies and tv shows.
I spent this past summer in Alaska, working at a Girl Scouts camp, where I worked with kids of all ages. In my free time, I hiked, kayaked, and camped and generally took advantage of a summer out in the wilderness before my move to Boston for school!
I provide a tutoring reference from my work in Virginia upon request.
