After UCLA

After graduation, I obtained a job at the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and Relations with Schools where I am currently working as a Student Affairs Officer. Although I am not using my International Degree directly, I do often interact with students from various world regions, so my educational background definitely comes in handy!

Since June 2014, I have been working as MSO (manager) at the department of Naval Science - UCLA naval ROTC program.

Advice for Current International Institute IDP Students

Definitely study abroad - even if it's just for a summer term. There is nothing better for the development of your language skills and cultural awareness than being immersed into your country/region of study.
