Amy Bush

I graduated from GVSU in 2013 with a double major in International Relations and German. I studied abroad for one semester in Germany as an undergraduate. Currently, I work in Washington, D.C., as a Senior Program Assistant for the Committee on Human Rights (CHR) at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Our work is very similar to Amnesty International, except that we only advocate on behalf of scientists, engineers, and health professionals, and that our appeals and other advocacy efforts for individuals are typically private until the case is resolved.  I've also just started graduate school in the evenings at George Mason University.  I am pursuing a Master’s degree in Social Work, and I plan to get more involved with refugee resettlement and integration. This past year I've been very involved with Young Professionals in Foreign Policy, and I currently serve as an editor for their fellowship program and pre-employment mentor for their refugee assistance program.
