Title of senior thesis: "Are the Mass Killings in China and Cambodia an Example of Genocide?"
Statement: "Throughout my academic career, I have studied both Italian and Chinese, including their cultures and languages. I recognize the importance of studying other cultures and countries to develop a secular and knowledgeable perspective about foreign relations, cultures and diplomacy. I believe that languages develop communication networks and create social, political, and economic opportunities. In the spring of my junior year, I studied abroad in Florence, Italy. By immersing myself in another country, I enhanced my understanding for other country’s governmental practices, customs and way of life."
