Career Area of Interest 
I am interested in International Security and International Development around the sporting industry. I am intrigued by the operation of sporting federations across the world and how they interact with each other cooperatively and with sportsmanship to provide progressive environments for all parties. Sport is a universal language across the globe that brings people together for common cause and celebration. Even in tough times, citizens are able to indulge themselves in sport for security and comfort. Being a integral part of the sporting industry within the IAAF or the IOC is a career interest of mine. I want to play a part in allowing nations across the planet to have positive interaction together through the language of sport.
