Roberta Allport graduated from Oxford University in 2013 with a 1st Class Honours degree in archaeology and anthropology. An avid enthusiast of applied social sciences and international relations, Roberta was heavily involved in several international relations publications and societies during her undergraduate studies. Upon graduating, Roberta interned for Nathan Associates London Ltd, an International Development Firm in London, before returning to the Caribbean to intern for the Caribbean Farmers Network, a St. Vincent-based grassroots regional farmers advocacy group where she worked with members of all 13 CARICOM states to set policy recommendations addressing the concerns of small farmers across the region. She has since gone on to work for a sustainable tourism start-up, and later held a position as the project officer in a relief programme set up in the wake of a devastating tropical storm in her native Dominica. At Yale, Roberta plans to focus on international finance, trade and economic development, with particular emphasis on Latin America and the Caribbean.
