Ms. Adamian is a Los Angeles native whose background spans foreign affairs, politics, business, and journalism. She recently graduated from Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service on a full-tuition scholarship, where she studied European policy and international business with an emphasis on sustainability.
While at Georgetown, Flora was awarded the prestigious Wallenberg Fellowship, which prepares highly qualified Master-level students with the knowledge and skills necessary to serve as the leaders of public and private organizations around the globe. This fellowship allowed her to live in Stockholm, Sweden, during the summer of 2022, during which she worked as a Sustainability Associate for EQT AB, a values-focused private equity firm. She helped develop and implement the company’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) framework and focused heavily on the collection and input of ESG data, research on global sustainability policies for firms, due diligence reports, and internal communications. Her summer experience sparked a passion for finding innovative solutions to combat climate change, which she plans to pursue post-grad.
Prior to Georgetown, Flora graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Occidental College, where she studied diplomacy and world affairs with a minor in German. In 2019, she was awarded the U.S. Department of State’s Congress-Bundestag Fellowship for Young Professionals, which allowed her to study at Humboldt Universität, intern for the German Parliament, and report on local news for a Berlin-based NPR member station. In between educational endeavors and fellowships, Flora has worked in political communications for the United States Congress, as a journalist specializing in public policy coverage and fact checking, and as a think tank researcher focused on foreign disinformation campaigns. She is fluent in German and Armenian.
