Zoe Prin is earning a dual Master’s degree in Public Administration and International Relations at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. She attended Seton Hall University’s School of Diplomacy and International Relations and received a Bachelor of Science in International Relations with a minor in Russian and a Certificate in Eastern European Studies. Through courses such as Post-Soviet Foreign Politics and a UN Field Seminar, Zoe engaged with the reality of multilateral diplomacy, discussed current events with state and non-state diplomats, and explored specializations such as energy politics within Europe and Eurasia.
Zoe was an active member of the Seton Hall community. She joined Seton Hall University’s Slavic Club as a freshman, eventually becoming the President of the organization. Over the course of four years, she directed all biweekly meetings, managed a $2,500 yearly budget, and oversaw over 20 officers. Zoe was also a founding member of the Theta Delta chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma. She handled confidential chapter matters as well as academic success and chapter reputation as the Vice President of Internal Affairs and the first Vice President of Standards.
She also interned with two nonprofits during her undergraduate career. Zoe helped establish the International Rescue Committee’s Co-Sponsorship Program in 2022, which maximized and more efficiently allocated refugee resources in the New Jersey area. In 2023, she led a Houston food security project and promoted religious freedom legislation in Texas with the Minaret Foundation, an interfaith, bipartisan civic engagement organization.
With her combined professional, academic, and personal experience in the field of international relations and public policy, Zoe strives to apply values of multicultural understanding and diplomatic engagement to her graduate coursework and U.S. Foreign Service aspirations.
