Amy O’Halloran is currently pursuing a B.A. in French and International Affairs, with a double concentration in Security Policy and Conflict Resolution, and a Minor in Arabic at the Elliott School of International Affairs at The George Washington University.
She comes from an international background with both American and Irish citizenship. Her passion for politics and international affairs began in high school. Her participation in Model United Nations and her selection as an Ambassador in domestic competition resulted in her acceptance to The Hague International Model United Nations program for three years. Amy was awarded the International Baccalaureate Bilingual Diploma demonstrating fluency in both French and English, and studied Mandarin for 3 years in high school, which included an exchange trip to Shanghai, China.
Today, she continues her involvement in Model United Nations and is an associate producer for “Colonial Crossfire,” a political debate show at The George Washington University. She also gained valuable work experience at CNN International in London in 2009 and 2010. When not debating politics, Amy is a goalkeeper for the Women’s Club Soccer team and also helps as a tutor at a local public high school.
