Elle Huang joins the GHD program after working as a Program Specialist at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), where she provides strategic and operational support to USAID Missions in Sudan and South Sudan. Prior to joining USAID, Elle served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ethiopia, where she worked with students and teachers to improve English language learning and instruction. Her service culminated in leading a collaborative effort with the regional education office to implement hands-on, deliverable-based technical training to teachers across several rural school districts. Elle’s upbringing as an immigrant and first-generation college graduate, reinforced by the service and professional opportunities she later pursued, has precipitated a strong, personal desire to leverage her experiences to enable, engage, and empower underserved populations, with the goal of creating a more equitable global community.
Elle graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a Bachelor in Business Administration and studied Information Technology, International Development, and German Language. She speaks proficient Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese Chinese, and German, and hopes to pursue the study of Spanish at Georgetown. In her free time, Elle can be found exploring the plentiful hiking trails near Washington, D.C.
