The Thomas R. Pickering Foreign Affairs Fellowship
Both Kenise Hill’s passion and long-term career objective has been to become a liaison between the United States and international financial markets. She desires to achieve this by providing seamless solutions to transnational and multi-national corporations and their customers. After working in the management consulting and technology spaces for past 10 years, her immediate career objective is to enter the Foreign Service as an Economic Officer to help protect the interests of the United States in China as well as in Latin America. The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation has assisted Kenise in the realization of that dream by providing her with the funding necessary to secure an education and by making available the experiences that will hone the analytical and problem solving skills she needs.
In preparation for a career in the Foreign Service within the Economic cone, Kenise is currently completing her Masters degree in Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service. She is specializing in the international commerce and business concentration while simultaneously sharpening her Spanish language. When Kenise was at Clark Atlanta University as an undergraduate, she majored in business administration with dual concentrations in finance and international business. She also studied Mandarin Chinese for two years while an undergraduate, received intensive Chinese language training at Middlebury College and later studied abroad in Beijing, China.
