Every semester, HIF offers the opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to intern with the foundation gaining substantive work experience while enjoying the bustling life of the US capital. This spring HIF is hosting Isabelle Colf of Loyola New Orleans College of Law.
Isabelle Colf is a Hungarian-American second year law student at Loyola New Orleans College of Law. She was born in Dallas, Texas, but spent her early childhood in France and Hungary. Isabelle grew up speaking Hungarian and English at home.
Isabelle earned her Bachelor’s in Business Administration in International Business from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas. While completing her degree she studied abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland, where she took courses in European law, and Debrecen, Hungary, where she took classes in Hungarian.
“I’m excited to be working for an organization that allows me to use my language skills and immerse myself in US-Hungarian relations. The work that HIF does is very important in spanning cultural differences and providing opportunities to Hungarians.”
Upon the completion of her Juris Doctorate, Isabelle would like to build a career in foreign affairs and international law.
“As a dual citizen I have the unique opportunity to provide both a Hungarian and an American perspective and look forward to helping HIF carry out their mission.”
