“I greatly enjoyed my time at SAIS – the overall experience, the people I met and the classes I took were exceptional. SAIS was very influential on the way I think, how I have conducted my career and my passion for all things international. SAIS continues to have a differentiated platform to educate future global leaders and impact the dialogue on so many important international issues. I am excited to play a role in helping SAIS navigate this complex environment and reach its full potential.”
