Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I'm currently a congressional staffer working for a Member of Congress that is in the House Foreign Affairs Committee (HFAC); subcommittee on Middle East and North Africa (MENA), as well as Homeland Security Committee. My aspiration is to one day work for the National Security Council in the White House, or be Assistant Secretary of State in the European and Eurasian Affairs bureau.
I hope to gain from GEN the network needed to attain my goals. I also hope to provide my experience to those who may have similar goals. This would be a great forum to have discussions on foreign policy, ethics in international relations and discussions on careers in the fields related.

Today we can accurately measure happiness and we know much more about its causes, says Professor Layard. It turns out that simply getting richer is often not enough for real happiness, so many policymakers are focusing on people's reported satisfaction with their lives. But it's not enough for individuals to pursue their own happiness. For the good of society as a whole they must strive for the happiness of others as well, which will also make them happier.
Automation is causing the greatest shift in human history and will put millions of Americans out of work, says entrepreneur and 2020 presidential candidate Andrew Yang. His solution? Put human values before GDP and provide a universal basic income of $1,000 a month, funded by a 10 percent value-added tax (VAT). This is not a government program, he argues, but a dividend given to we the people, who are the owners of this country.
Professional diplomats are made not born, says Nicholas Kralev of the Washington International Diplomatic Academy. It's not enough to be a people person: training is needed in specific skills. Sadly, many Americans don't realize how diplomats' successes or failures can affect their own security and prosperity. Even U.S. presidents often don't appreciate the Foreign Service. And under Trump, State Department professionals are leaving in droves.
