Her senior thesis about the Balkans was honored at Washington College, where she was chosen to present at the Naval Academy an original paper on water scarcity in the Middle East. Her note was subsequently published in the Rutgers Law Journal, for which she served as articles editor during law school. She has visited more than 40 countries.
