As a member of an investigation team in the Office of the Prosecutor, I work on researching and analyzing video materials and documents relevant for the prosecution of persons suspected of committing war crimes in the territory of the former Yugoslavia. As the investigation team is made up of trial attorneys, war-crimes investigators, and intelligence analysts, I can honestly say that my education at the Pepperdine School of Public Policy has contributed to the success I now enjoy in my work.
The program's insistence on a well-rounded education has given me a solid foundation not just in international relations, but also law and economics, both of which have frequently been helpful as I pursue justice and reconciliation. The rigorous and demanding program has also equipped me with sharp analytical and problem-solving skills which are crucial for deciphering all the complexities of the breakup of the former Yugoslavia. The School of Public Policy's knowledgeable and passionate professors have taught me impartiality and objectivity. Lastly, Pepperdine's unique and supportive atmosphere from both the professors and staff made me feel like I am part of a big family.
