Sumeet Kaur is a recent graduate of the Elliott School of International Affairs at the George Washington University, where she completed her bachelor’s degree in International Affairs. As an undergraduate, Sumeet received recognition and awards for her research, which ranged from public health to international security topics, and has presented her work to academic audiences.

Ms. Kaur’s various skills, wide-range of interests and constant itch to be an advocate have landed her in positions working for an environmental non-profit, a women’s health advocacy organization, and the civil service. Currently, as a program analyst in the public sector, Ms. Kaur’s work fosters greater information sharing and cooperation amongst government agencies.

During college, Ms. Kaur interned for the Center for Strategic and International Studies, where she explored the role of public-private partnerships in international development and state building. In 2013, she interned for Senator Christopher A. Coons of Delaware, where she examined complex political situations in North, Eastern and Sub-Saharan African countries, specifically the 2013 Egyptian coup and extremist activity in Somalia. Her work was later used in hearings for the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.

Ms. Kaur’s concerns for security and dedication to environmentalism converge at her interest in climate security. Ms. Kaur’s ultimate goal is to become a national policy adviser, using her commitment to environmentalism and drive for change as a means to a stable and livable climate.
