Fall 2020 CHCI-Coca-Cola Intern
Hometown: Miami, Florida
School: Florida International University
Major: International Relations & Psychology
Tatiana was born and raised in Miami, Florida by a single mother who immigrated to the United States from Colombia. Being surrounded by powerful women all her life, Tatiana understands the importance of being a female leader in her community and seeks to empower others through education. On-campus, she serves as a head delegate for FIU’s top-ranked Model United Nations program where she lectures students in public speaking, historical background, writing, and solution-driven analysis. Previously, she served as Elections Commissioner for the Student Government Association, overseeing the elections for the fourth-largest public university, and worked alongside a team to ensure the integrity of the democratic process. This past summer, she interned in the risk division for Goldman Sachs learning about real estate credit.
Tatiana is currently a rising senior pursuing a dual degree in International Relations and Psychology at Florida International University’s Honors College, with a minor in Political science and a specialization in behavioral analysis. After completing her undergraduate studies, Tatiana plans on perusing a career in the U.S Foreign Service. She hopes to research the ties between the United States and Latin America, to pinpoint areas that would support both U.S businesses and develop businesses in Latin America.
As a CHCI Intern, Tatiana hopes to experience firsthand bipartisan cooperation, and improve her understanding of the legislative process as it relates to foreign policy. She hopes this experience will help expand her intellect and leadership capabilities to become a better public servant.
