More About This Scholar

“Hello” in your host country’s language: Hello
Home Institution (your U.S. University/College): University of South Carolina
Expected graduation year: 2022
Destination city & country: Canterbury, United Kingdom
Program provider: University of Kent
Major/minor: Major: International Studies
Minor: Linguistics
Demographics: First-generation, non-traditional
Future career aspirations: After graduation, I would like to pursue a master’s degree abroad in Global Security and Borders or in Violence, Terrorism, and Security. My goal is to be a part of an international project or international nonprofit organization to help bring the best practices to law enforcement or assistance generally, to improve the lives of people. Especially vulnerable communities, where families face violence or other critical issues that threaten their safety and impede their development and progress.
Top 3 goals for your time abroad: 1- Broaden my knowledge and gain the necessary expertise to strengthen my professional competencies regarding international cooperation and international security matters.
2- Increase my understanding regarding the UK’s new role in Europe as the Brexit process takes place and how this affects the UK and neighboring countries.
3- Engage with a diverse community from whom I can draw more insight and different perspectives into the world, as well as establish lasting friendships and a network of contacts to further a cultural and professional collaboration.
