Samantha Mori is currently a fourth year student at the University of Virginia (UVA), studying Foreign Affairs and Chinese Language and Literature. She is also a graduate student in the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy pursuing a Master in Public Policy. She hopes to further pursue a career in policy or international relations with East Asia. Her interest in policy began with her time interning at the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) a non-profit civil rights organization, and has blossomed into a passion for public service. Samantha has also interned with the United States Department of Agriculture Foreign Agricultural Service which combined her love of international relations and food policy. She hopes to continue to work on policy in these related fields. Outside of UVA and public policy, Samantha enjoys photography, traveling, and trying new foods!
