Public Administration, International Relations
Elizabeth is pursuing a joint master’s degree in public administration and international relations at the Maxwell School at Syracuse University.
Elizabeth graduated summa cum laude from Dickinson College in 2018 where she majored in Latin American Studies and with a Portuguese & Brazilian Studies Minor. Her interest in Latin America began with her family’s stories about their native Mexico and created a long-lasting passion for the region. Mexico’s rich history of revolution and perseverance intrigued her to learn more about Latin America and began her journey into international relations and education.
Elizabeth’s academic and professional experiences have cemented her commitment to work that centers marginalized populations in national and international discussions and conflict resolution. Particularly, working in and volunteering at the grassroot level in the United States and Latin America have shown her the importance of collaboration and empowered citizenship in creating sustainable change and reaching equality. In Central Pennsylvania, she has worked with organizations dedicated to refugee resettlement and emergency service relief for low-income communities of color. As a Princeton in Latin America Fellow in Mexico and a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Brazil, she worked alongside educators and other stakeholders to better understand how education serves as a valuable connection across barriers and its vital role in societal change.
At the Maxwell School, Elizabeth hopes to explore her interests in diplomacy, conflict resolution, and international collaboration. In the future, she hopes to create just and inclusive education and immigration policy.
