Deputy Team Leader for USAID: OTI in Washington, DC

My designation as a Croft Scholar and recipient of the thesis prize for writing on a Latin American topic gave me the academic confidence that I needed to pursue my master's degree at The George Washington University. I can honestly say that I say that I'm realizing my goal of having a dynamic international career, and it all began at Croft!
