An education from the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) at Columbia University would not only provide me with the tools I need to make a difference, but the connections and guidance necessary to point me in the right direction. In all of my research of Graduate schools, I feel that the SIPA is the perfect match for me. In particular I would like to work with Lisa Anderson and learn more about how social science can affect public policy; the courses offered in Social Policy and Human Rights interest me. I am also impressed with the intensity and the comparative resources and guest lecturers that have spoken at SIPA in the past.

It is through my education and experience that I have gained a passion for diplomacy. It is my hope and desire that this dream may be realized and that I may have the opportunity to become a diplomat and continue my country’s mission and outreach in developing nations.
