Alexandra Susano

Program Officer

I have always aspired to work in an area where I can make a positive difference for others, even if it’s small. ICFJ is the perfect place for me to be part of something big, working with a team to help empower journalists. At ICFJ I provide finance and logistical support for our  programs around the world. I’m currently working with U.S. government-funded Latin American programs such as the Digital Path to Entrepreneurship and Innovation for Latin America. I also get to work on a program designed to bolster digital security for journalists in Southeast Asia.

My background: In the past I worked at a nonprofit early childhood development center where I taught children from low-income families. I also assisted with English-Spanish interpretation. In addition, I’ve worked for the U.S. government as an intern with the Department of Homeland Security and provided administrative support in various departments, such as the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services. I have a B.A. in global affairs with a concentration in human security from George Mason University.
