I am a Political Scientist from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia with 4 years of experience in the public sector in public relations and international affairs. Before coming to the United States I worked for the Government of the city of Medellin at the Agency of Cooperation and Investment for Medellin and the Metropolitan Area where I was part of the City-Region Projection team. As an international Affairs Advisor I was in charge of the creation and implementation of a South-South Cooperation strategy for the city, as well as the international outreach and the positioning of the city programs among different cities worldwide.

Two of the reasons why I chose the Josef Korbel School are its focus on leadership and the multi-disciplinary approach of its programs. As an international student I was looking for a place to learn not only from the theory but from the interaction with different cultures. At Korbel I found the perfect place to further my knowledge while directly working in the application of international politics and economic theory.

The Josef Korbel School has given me the tools to pursue my careers goals. The theoretical framework is always presented on the basis of contemporary events preparing us as students for the real challenges of a professional career. Furthermore lectures and seminars are constantly taking place in our school; ambassadors, representatives from international organizations and personalities that have great influence on the international level visit us and share their experience in this field.
