After graduating from USC Aiken, I interned with the Aiken County Government Risk Management Office and worked part-time with the USC Aiken Athletics Department. In March 2016, I was hired full-time as a paralegal with Connor & Connor, LLC, a law firm in Aiken that focuses on nursing home negligence cases. At Connor & Connor, I used the research skills I acquired as a history major to draft memos, court documents, and meeting summaries.
In August 2016, I began a Masters at the Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce at the University of Kentucky, focusing on international development, and comparative politics. Graduate school is not without its challenges, but I think the education I received at USCA well prepared me for a competitive program. After graduate school I’ll begin the job search, with the ultimate goal of ending up in either a multilateral organization such as the World Bank on the IMF, or going into political management/risk consulting.
