Before and Beyond College Spark

Ali is a current graduate student in the UW Masters of Policy Studies program, focusing on human rights and minority representation. She graduated from UW Bothell in 2017 with an undergrad double major in Global Studies and Law, Economics, & Public Policy. Alexandra’s future goal is to work as a policy analyst, researching and implementing policies to help vulnerable communities. Outside of school and work, she is an avid international traveler and has yet to find a food she doesn’t like.

Night Table Reading

  • The Poisonwood Bible, Barbara Kingsolver
  • The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien
  • the occasional Buzzfeed quiz about what food I am... (it's sushi)
