Born and raised in Sterling, Virginia. Anjela Lusk holds a bachelor’s degree in International Studies from Virginia Tech, with a concentration in World Policy and Politics. She has a strong interest in political and foreign affairs and is currently working towards her master’s degree in European and Eurasian Studies at the George Washington University.
While at Virginia Tech, she participated in various student clubs and was President of the Model UN Team and International Relations Organization at Virginia Tech. She also spent time as a student researcher, for the State Department’s Diplomacy Lab. This program is a public-private partnership between U.S. universities and the State Department, to “course-source” research related to foreign policy challenges. Her leadership and research roles at Virginia Tech have given her strong knowledge of foreign affairs and important research experience.
Recently, Anjela completed an internship at Partnership for Global Security (PGS) as Communications Assistant and looks forward to working with THO, by assisting with events and communications that will focus on increasing relations between the U.S. and Turkey and bringing more awareness to the current events in Turkey.
