Allyn Anderson is a gender and global security program assistant with WIIS. She is currently pursuing a bachelor’s of international relations at the University of Maryland. For WIIS, she has recently worked on the “Enhancing Security in Latin America and the Caribbean” project and is currently working on completing some behind-the-scenes administrative work, too. In her free time, she loves to go on long walks with her dog to local parks, restaurants, and dog-friendly bookstores.  She also enjoys reading declassified intelligence reports (yes, for fun) and hopes to one day see her name in the credits of a major intelligence report. After she graduates, she plans to work within the federal government, preferably within the intelligence community.
