I am Maxwell.

My experience at Maxwell helped shape my career by teaching me about the complex system of global politics and foreign policy. Model UN and classes in United States foreign policy helped me to be an active learner and skillful writer. Strong writing and public speaking skills are crucial for success no matter what career path students pursue.”
