The friendships we made on the trip will lead to a wide network of connections down the road.

The entire process of strategic planning and forecasting for the potential crisis has me highly intrigued and is partly why I am interested in pursuing a career within the intelligence sector.

I feel way more confident about my public speaking and negotiating skills.

It is bittersweet because we have been a cohort that has visited so many places, talked to many officials around the world, and learned and grown together.

Chloe Lovato
NATO Field School 2019


I've been thinking of the NATO Field School during this time, and how it must be affected by the global pandemic. I am so grateful for everything I learned during the field school and how it gave me an unparalleled hands-on experience that helped me to advance my studies in political science. It was actually because of the field school, especially our stop in Riga, that I have decided to do a masters in strategic communications, as I feel that it is an incredibly important and current field of study. I am applying to the Strategic Communications programs at King's College London and at the London School of Economics.
