Kyra Easton
U.S. Commercial Service

About Kyra

Kyra Easton is a Junior from Manassas, Virginia. She is pursuing her Bachelor of Arts in International Studies, Politics and Diplomacy and a minor in French. As the daughter of a diplomat in the U.S. military, she was privileged to live in Europe for six years and is very excited to go back to Paris. Being a military brat, she was taught the values of honor, selflessness, and sacrifice, which instilled in her a passion for public service. She is interested in foreign affairs, public policy, international law, and hopes to someday combine all of these interests in her career. At A&M, she has had the opportunity to tutor veterans in writing and composition through the Warrior-Scholar Project, volunteer for Disability Services, and currently works in the Department of International Studies as a communications intern. She hopes that the internship with the U.S. Commercial Service in Paris will allow her to learn more about the functional aspects of international trade.
