Pamela Makadsi started with the UNMA in the Spring 2019. As a graduate student in the United Nations and Global Policy studies program, she is focusing on Conflict Resolution and Counter-terrorism. Pamela holds her Bachelor of Art in Middle Eastern studies and Political Science from Rutgers University.
This program enables her to learn more about current global issues specifically in the Middle East region. Pamela was born in Lebanon and the political unrest in the region has motivated her to immerse her knowledge on the political dynamics of the Middle East and its impact on the U.S national security. She aims to utilize her Arabic language skills in her professional career. After completing this master’s degree, Pamela’s goal is to become a Foreign service officer.
Pamela is fluent in English and Arabic.
