Native to Austin, Loren Riemer is pursuing her Masters of Global Policy Studies with an emphasis on International Development at the LBJ School of Public Affairs. Upon completion of her University of Texas undergraduate degrees in government and journalism in 2009, Loren traveled to Kenya where she lived in an orphanage and taught primary school.
This experience led to Loren’s interest in the Kenyan education system, specifically, female access to education in developing countries. In the summer of 2010, Loren co-founded a non-governmental organization (NGO) based in Kenya in an attempt to address this issue. She hopes her studies will further her knowledge of NGO management, education reform, and international development strategy.
