Alexandra Constantinou is currently an MSc student at the London School of Economics (LSE), studying International Development and Humanitarian Emergencies. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Ohio State University (Hons) with a BA in International Relations and two minors in Modern Greek and Non-Profit Management. While studying abroad in Geneva, Switzerland in the fall of 2013, Alexandra interned at CARE International Secretariat as the assistant to the Humanitarian Director, which further peaked her interest in pursuing international relations across the pond. In her undergraduate career, she has also spent time in Washington DC interning at the Center for American Progress in their Economic Policy Department and at the Embassy of the Republic of Cyprus as the PR intern during summer term. She is an active volunteer and mentor who has participated in activities ranging from Habitat for Humanity, teaching Ethiopian refugees English and helping run the LSE Global Right to Education which helps conflict-affected youth pursue an education abroad. She has also served as the President of TOMS Ohio State, where she worked extensively with a group of campus representatives to raise awareness about One for One movement in Columbus. Alexandra couldn't be more grateful to have had the opportunity to take her interests in international relations to London, and loves living and studying in Europe. She is open to any opportunities that will challenge her to grow professionally in the humanitarian industry as well as in the international media sector.
