Summer received her undergraduate degree at the University of West Florida in Hospitality, Recreation and Resort Management. After working in the recreation and fitness industry for five years she turned her attention to international relations. She is planning on completing the thesis tract for the MA in Political Science and her primary research interests include exploring the role of women in foreign politics and the impact of patriarchal societies on women's rights. Upon graduation, Summer would like to work for the State Department, F.B.I, or another agency of the federal government and eventually earn a PhD. In addition to the MPS degree, she am working on a graduate certificate in Women's Studies and learning Arabic (Asalaam aleikum!).
