That’s when ambition fueled a fiery story line: a sustainable development internship in Germany, a federal internship, and graduation from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh at 21. Afterwards, a Fulbright scholarship took her back to Germany, and then the Rotary Foundation sent her to the UK. She was awarded a Master of Letters from the School of International Relations at the University of St Andrews in November 2011.

I’d have one ready for my own
I would have written of me on my stone
I had a lover’s quarrel with the world.
