Representative Zoe Lofgren (D-CA-19)
Tammy Pham is a senior at Princeton University’s School of Public and International Affairs, focusing on Conflict and Security Studies with certificates in East Asian Language and Culture, as well as History and Practice of Diplomacy. She is passionate about human rights, political economy, and international cooperation, and aspires to pursue a diplomatic career working towards sustainable peace in conflict regions, building on her experiences effecting change locally. When her hometown in California was devastated by wildfires, Tammy leveraged connections with the Red Cross, the city council, and her former manager at a local restaurant to provide food for firefighters and those displaced from their homes. Both her academic focus and her leadership experiences have taught her to analyze crises and design solutions through a diversity of perspectives. After graduating in 2022, she plans on working within the federal government before getting a Master’s in International Relations or attending law school.
