Maggie Kmetz served as a youth development volunteer with the Peace Corps in rural Morocco. She taught a variety of classes, including English, life skills, athletics, and employability skills. She is most proud of the planning, securing, and managing of a White House Women’s Gender Development and Prosperity grant to open the first female-run bakery at her volunteer site, which continues to operate today. Maggie previously interned with Congressman John B. Larson in Connecticut and regularly attended briefings on Capitol Hill and conducted independent legislative research for the Congressman and his policy team. She also interned with Family Equality as a community events and programs intern. Maggie holds a bachelor’s degree in public policy from the University of Delaware. She plans to pursue a JD after completing the Master of Global Affairs program and ultimately hopes to work at the intersection of gender and economic development in previously colonized countries. Maggie is the recipient of a Donald & Marilyn Keough Fellowship.
