Alanna Hoffman

Assistant Program Coordinator in Lincoln, NE

I am a higher education professional working in a multicultural center, committed to expanding diversity and inclusion initiatives.

In 2015, I completed my masters degree in International Relations from The London School of Economics and Political Science. Prior to this, I spent two years teaching English as a Fulbright Teaching Fellow in South Korea. I walked away from that experience with a strong desire to continue supporting students in their academic and personal growth.

As an English instructor, my job was to teach my students grammar and conversation. However, my passion came from the idea that I helped students broaden their worldview through learning about other cultures.

In addition to teaching, I became heavily invested in working with North Korean defector students and had opportunities to learn about North Korea through research and literature as well as through working directly with students.

I am motivated by the idea that cross-cultural understanding is key in order to enhance cooperation between societies. I plan to use my teaching, leadership, and linguistic skills to in order to pursue a career in International Exchange.
