Today I went to a lecture given by a really cool woman, Dr. Casey Lucias.
She spoke about conflict and cooperation in the maritime environment and different approaches for obtaining peace in the world. What I found most inspiring was that she had a diverse background personally and professionally, and she is currently moving into the realm of politics to make a difference and put her academic theories in practice! International relations is one of my areas of study and it is exciting to see other women leading the way in it. If you like the science of politics, enjoy thinking internationally, or think this may be an area for you- check out these links!
A free course
Even if political science or international relations is not your thing, it provides valuable skills and tools that everyone can use no matter their field, such as can be found here
