Christine Clark graduated Phi Beta Kappa and with high distinction from the University of Virginia in 2012. She double majored in foreign affairs and Middle Eastern studies. During college, Christine interned with the Federal Bureau of Investigation at their Washington, D.C. headquarters and the Charlottesville Resident Agency. In 2011, she began a study abroad program in Cairo, but the Arab Spring forced her to evacuate the city, and she spent the semester at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland instead. She returned to Egypt after graduation for a one-year internship in the Office of the Provost at the American University in Cairo. Protests were common, and just before she left, the Egyptian military took control of the government. Christine’s experiences in Egypt sparked her interest in human rights and American diplomacy. Upon returning to the United States, Christine joined the team at Foreign Affairs, where she spent four years as the magazine’s editorial assistant. While in this position, Christine conducted extensive research for Jonathan Tepperman’s book, The Fix. After graduating from Yale, Christine hopes to work at the U.S. Department of State.
