I graduated from Howard University in 2015 with a degree in Political Science where I focused on International Relations and minored in Russian Studies. My strengths are in writing essays, research papers, and personal statements. I am quite adept preparing for content tests in courses that deal with Foreign Policy, Political Theory, Macroeconomics, Comparative Politics, and History. In high school I took AP U.S History and AP U.S Government and scored well on both exams. In college, I informally reviewed essays, term papers, and research papers of my peers and had great success in assisting them prepare A worth outlines. I find great satisfaction in and seeing people succeed and reach their goals and I endeavor to leave a positive impression on all individuals whose paths I cross.
