Lilli Abraham, a Spring Associate at Grieboski Global Strategies, is a sophomore from New Jersey in the Elliott School of International Affairs at The George Washington University. She is majoring in International Affairs with a concentration in Security Policy and minor in Arabic.

Particularly interested in the Middle East and Nuclear Security, Lilli is currently on her second internship of her sophomore year. In the fall, she was a Research Intern at The Center for the Study of Weapons of Mass Destruction (CSWMD) at The National Defense University. During her time at CSWMD, Lilli researched the joint effort by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the United Nations to remove chemical weapons from Syria. She also helped research and edit a three-hundred-page manuscript detailing the eighteen cases of Nuclear Rollback. Lilli’s immense interest in the Middle East has also led her to pursue Arabic. On her mission to become fluent in the language, she plans on studying abroad in Jordan next fall.

Working at GGS has provided Lilli with the opportunity to greatly advance her educational and career ambitions. By writing country reports and blogs on current issues, attending enlightening events throughout Washington D.C., and learning the value of networking, Lilli has expanded her knowledge of international affairs and has gained exceptional experience in the workforce- all while still just a sophomore.

At George Washington, Lilli is a member of the Strategic Crisis Simulations Club where she writes challenging and educational plotlines for war-games. Lilli is also a proud sister of the sorority Sigma Delta Tau and has served on the Philanthropy Committee for the past three semesters.

In her spare time, you can find Lilli with her friends, on a long run to the monuments, or reading a good book. She enjoys traveling and spending time with her family, and looks forward to more adventures both in Washington D.C. and abroad in the upcoming years.
