Amy holds a Bachelor's degree in History and Political Science from Trinity College Dublin and a Masters in European Politics and Policy from University College Dublin. From a young age, Amy has been interested in politics and became more engaged with European politics when she completed her Erasmus in Sciences Po in France. Since then, Amy has undertaken various internships in Brussels; first as a Communications Intern with the European Citizens Rights Involvement and Trust (ECIT) Foundation and most recently as a Trainee in the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) with Diversity Europe Group III. Amy is actively involved with the National Youth Council of Ireland (NYCI) and has previously worked as a politics and Irish language teacher. These experiences increased her passion for youth participation in politics, advocacy and accessibility to civic and political education. She currently serves as Communications Secretary for the Irish Girl Guides (IGG) and volunteers as a mentor with the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) with a focus on volunteerism and service.
