 Anastasia Burnett (C’15), Stephanie Arzate (SFS’15), Yassitoungou Tamdji (SFS’11) and Anna Jozwik (G’17) will use the fellowship, funded by the U.S. State Department, to pursue master’s degrees and join the the Foreign Service after graduation. ...
Jozwik has studied in the United Arab Emirates as a Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholar and interned with the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees in Syria. The Georgetown alumna later extended her time in Syria to work as a local magazine editor and English language teacher and translator before the outbreak of civil war.

She moved to Lebanon at the end of 2012 to work as a protection officer with the International Rescue Committee’s women’s protection and empowerment program.

“I look forward to starting a career as a public diplomacy [JB emphasis] foreign service officer to engage with civil society in Arab countries to foster peaceful, democratic transitions and help repair the rifts between the U.S. and the Arab World,” she explains. “My long-term career goal is to become an ambassador.”
