Kelsey Fraser ’15
After completing her undergraduate degree in International Trade and Anthropology, Kelsey chose the TAM program to expand upon her interest in European politics and multilateral affairs. She completed her semesters abroad at the University of Bath and the University of Siena. During her final semester she worked as an intern at the US Mission to the United Nations, supporting the team negotiating the Sustainable Development Agenda. This further solidified her interest in multilateral relations. After an extensive job hunt, including a stint as an au pair in Germany, and a research fellow in Geneva, Kelsey found full-time work at the UK Embassy to the Unites States as a governance officer within the Northern Ireland Bureau. In this role, she said the word ‘Brexit’ far too many times than she thought humanly possible and was able to truly showcase the knowledge and subject matter depth that TAM provides. She currently works at the Delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to the United Nations, supporting the organization’s humanitarian diplomacy efforts.
