More About

My name is Louis Conde and I am currently enrolled in a Master’s degree in International Policy at the University of Georgia. I received my Bachelor’s degrees from the University of Georgia and I was the second in my family to ever attend college in the United States. Both of my parents immigrated to the United States from Guatemala once they decided to begin a better life for my sister and I, and from them on, they have worked their whole lives to provide my sister and I with the opportunities to succeed.

Since high school, I have worked as hard as possible to reach the goals I set for myself. I took countless AP courses and volunteered with a couple of organizations I felt very close to, and through my work, I was accepted into UGA in 2014. I seized every opportunity that was given to me and through that, I was able to study abroad twice at Oxford University, as well as be accepted into both the Richard B. Russell Security Leadership Program and the Applied Politics Program.

I plan on going into consulting work after I complete my Masters and possibly running for Congress one day in order to make positive change in the world.
