Kayla Howe

As part of her master's degree program in public administration, Kayla Howe participated in the Certificate in International Development and Social Change (also known as DPMI). This certificate is an intensive 3-week program offered at various locations such as Monterey, Washington D.C., Rwanda and Kenya, either as part of a degree program or not, and its objective is to prepare aspiring professionals for a career managing international development projects.

After graduation, Kayla is headed to Washington D.C., where she will be employed by the US State Department as a consular officer. She is looking forward to building on the experience she has gained at MIIS and to utilize the skills she has honed through different activities, most notably our international development certificate program where she had the opportunity to work on her facilitation, cooperation and organizational skills and prepare for her chosen career.
