Ana Paula Velasco
Business Development Fellow
Ana Paula Velasco is in her third year at the George Washington University, where she studies International Affairs with a minor in Film Studies. She was born in Mattoon, Illinois and was raised in San Antonio, Texas after spending her early years in Queretaro, Mexico.
In her first two years at GW, Ana Paula was heavily involved in TEDxFoggyBottom, one of the largest TEDx organizations in the country, and spent her sophomore year as Content Director. She has held a variety of internships in the nation’s capital and San Antonio, to include time in Congressman Will Hurd’s (TX-23) District and Capitol Hill offices as well as a summer at Signal Group DC, a business management consultancy. This spring, AP will be interning at USHCC as a Business Development Fellow, where she will work closely with the Business Development team to strengthen USHCC relations with sponsors and partners. On the weekend, AP works at John Fluevog Shoes in Georgetown as a part-time “Fluevogologist.”
In her free time, she enjoys watching movies at E-Street Cinema and brainstorming film ideas. She is a proud Chicana-Tejana and looks to pursue a Master’s program in International Affairs abroad upon graduating from her undergraduate program.
