Callie Burke graduated from Occidental College in 2010 with a BA in Diplomacy and World Affairs. During her undergraduate career, she spent a semester in Botswana and interned at the United Nations in the Africa II Section of the Office of Coordination for Humanitarian Affairs. This encouraged her to pursue an education in African Studies where she plans to concentrate on the intersection between conflict, peacekeeping, and humanitarian affairs (specifically in the Great Lakes region) as well as sustainable tourism and wildlife protection in Southern Africa. She is considering going to law school next year at UCLA with hopes of eventually working in diplomacy. In her free time, you can find Callie curled up on the couch with a novel or up on the mountain with her snowboard.
