Hey everyone! My name’s Val and I’m currently a senior at the University of Pittsburgh studying Political Science with a minor in Italian. Throughout my time at Pitt, I have been narrowing my focus on topics related to International Relations. Over the past four years, I have developed a strong passion for issues relating to international security, which has ultimately led me to fulfilling a concentration in Peace, Conflict, and Security. Throughout this page, you’ll be able to learn more about my course history, my experience abroad, other outside experiences that have all played an integral role in shaping who I am and where I see myself in the future. After graduating, I plan to attend law school and continue working with organizations committed to defending good governance and keeping communities safe.
