Annie Shiel

Washington, DC

From New York to DC via Montreal and Buenos Aires, where I studied at McGIll University and Universidad del Salvador, respectively. BA International Development with a focus on conflict and peacebuilding. Wrote a cool thesis on crowdsourcing in conflict zones that I'm revising for publication. Currently working at the U.S. Department of State on security and human rights, including tech & data for human rights and atrocity prevention. Also a yoga teacher. Previously worked at State on gender-based violence and human rights in Latin America, and before that as a journalist for The McGill Daily. Into traveling, feminism, yoga, street art, and good (vegan) food. Fluent in Spanish; French and Arabic coming along. Visit me on LinkedIn for more work info, hop on to my Twitter for cool articles and alternative viewpoints, or jet over to my Instagram for shameless food and travel pics.
