UC Irvine Class of 2008
Major: International Studies
“To this day, I credit my experience with OTI as being one of the most impactful experiences in my life. The planning, fundraising, organizing and traveling with classmates and counterparts taught me more than any traditional classroom experience could. I am thrilled to see the organization continue to grow. Even now, I meet new people who are OTI alumni, and I'm proud to see what they have done with their experience.”
After finishing my BA in International Studies at UCI, I went on to earn a Masters in Public Diplomacy at USC (c/o 2010). I then spent nearly 3 years as a press, policy and public affairs officer for the British Consulate-General, Los Angeles. I am now a communications and campaign consultant at a social cause firm called Griffin|Schein where I help build national cause-oriented campaigns for non-profits and high profile individuals.
