How did the Bonderman impact your life?

“The Bonderman connected me with kindred spirits everywhere, and that spirit has stayed with me. Professionally, I’ve made my career as a civil servant and developed global policy as a White House lawyer. Internationalism has also manifested for me personally as a core value for the nonprofit coalition I co-founded three years ago.”

What are you doing now?
“I work for the U.S. government as an environmental lawyer. My job has ample opportunities for international travel. I love my job and the chance to work with people from different countries and to travel abroad as a representative of the U.S. government.”
