I am a German Studies and Government double-major. I have been studying German since my freshman year at William and Mary and lived in the German House first semester sophomore year. During my second semester sophomore year I studied abroad at Heidelberg University, Heidelberg, Germany through the American Junior Year Abroad program. My semester at Heidelberg was one of my undergraduate highlights and helped to improve both my spoken and written German. At Heidelberg I was able to combine my interest in Government and German by taking courses ranging from German politics to the German welfare state. It also gave me the opportunity to travel around Germany, specifically southern Germany and to experience German culture. During my junior year I was a TA for Professor Seidl-Gomez’s German 201 class. I am currently an intern at Amnesty International where I get to combine my interest in Government and German by working on Advocacy in Europe.
